Faith for Decarceration Weekend


February 22-24 is the weekend of action for  New York’s faith communities in support of decarcerating jails, protecting due process, and ending wealth and race-based jailing. Use the toolkit below to preach, pray, lead a discussion and/or share a handout about the moral necessity of bail reform with your congregation. (Let us know you're participating at bit.ly/faith-weekend.)

You can participate in any way that makes sense for your community, for example:

  • Preaching on these topics

  • Using the prayers included in the toolkit

  • Leading a discussion

  • Showing the #FREEnewyork faith leader video (to be completed soon and linked to the toolkit)

  • Distributing a handout on bail, discovery and speedy trial reform and how to take action: Christian, Jewish, Muslim

We would appreciate your letting us know that your faith community will be participating. Please fill out this brief form: bit.ly/faith-weekend
