Examining incarceration issues in Oklahoma through the eyes of the church.
Oklahoma is currently #1 in the nation for incarcerating both men AND women. How are our schools contributing to our incarceration problem? Emily Jones, Social Action staff with United Methodist Women national office in New York City, will address this issue on a national level. April Sellers-White, Oklahoma Associate District Judge for Creek County and currently serving on the board of Criminal Justice And Mercy Ministries, will give us some insight into the judicial system in our state. Kris Steele, served as Speaker of the House of Representatives and currently serves as the chair of the Pardon and Parole Board, will share his work in prison reform and the role of the Pardon and Parole Board for the incarcerated and the state. BREAKING CHAINS will be the event to attend for all who are interested in prison reform or wanting to know more about our incarceration issues. For further information call Harri Williams, 405-623-7968. A light breakfast and lunch with snacks will be served.
