Inspire the church, change the culture, advance justice reform
Partner with your state or district team to raise awareness about the impact of crime and incarceration and advance biblically-based justice reform campaigns, consistent with the doctrinal statement, philosophy, and strategy of Prison Fellowship. Grow as a Christian disciple by bringing the values of Jesus into the criminal justice system, raising awareness to help to ensure that punishment fits the crime, and that those who have paid their debt to society have the opportunity to rebuild their lives.
Justice Advocates must have an understanding of criminal justice reform and be able to change hearts and minds through: influencing state/federal legislators, hosting events to raise awareness, or convincing others to take action (sign petitions, write their elected officials, etc.)
Contribute to criminal justice policy research and analysis
Partner with Prison Fellowship to demonstrate the need for a restorative criminal justice system by researching criminal justice policy issues and providing materials consistent with the doctrinal statement, philosophy, and strategy of Prison Fellowship. Be a part of the great work God is doing on justice that restores by using your research skills on behalf of Prison Fellowship.
Justice Researchers must have strong research skills and highly accurate citations. Research projects can be performed at the Prison Fellowship headquarters or remotely under the supervision of full-time Prison Fellowship staff.
Put a face and story to crime and incarceration through the written word
Partner with Prison Fellowship to raise awareness about the impact of crime and incarceration and to advance biblically-based justice reform campaigns. Advocate for a restorative criminal justice system by writing op-eds, LTEs, or blogs consistent with the doctrinal statement, philosophy, and strategy of Prison Fellowship. Use your writing skills to share God’s passion to restore those impacted by crime and incarceration and help inspire the country to pursue biblical justice reforms on behalf of Prison Fellowship.
Advocacy Writers must have strong writing abilities and submit a writing sample. Writing projects can be performed at the Prison Fellowship headquarters or remotely under the supervision of full-time Prison Fellowship staff.
WHAT IS JUSTICE THAT RESTORES?
A restorative approach to crime and incarceration recognizes the dignity and value of all human life. By promoting accountability for those responsible for crime, encouraging the participation of victims in the restorative process, and cultivating community engagement, justice is promoted and communities are restored.
