ICJC recently hosted “Prison Abolition and Faith Communities: A conversation with Dr. Vincent Lloyd and Dr. Joshua Dubler. In their 2019 book Break Every Yoke: Religion, Justice, and the Abolition of Prisons, Dubler and Lloyd argue that religion is both connected to the rise of mass incarceration, and a necessary element in its dismantling via abolition.
