In the closing episode, "Out of the Book, into the Streets", we discuss what congregations can do and are doing to unravel the mass incarceration of black and brown people. Are there corporations we should be divesting from? How can congregations partner with secular organizations to turn the tide? Is it time to revive teach-ins and other strategies from previous justice struggles?  Paula Cole Jones, Director for Racial and Social Justice with the Joseph Priestley District of the Unitarian Universalist Association, joins as a fellow host with Carlton Elliott Smith and Alex Boston of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Arlington, Virginia.

Our guests this week are:

 

Janet Tillman, the Disabilities Project Coordinator with the Delaware Coalition Against Domestic Violence and a consultant to nonprofit organizations.  Janet is a member of the First Unitarian Church of Wilmington, Delaware.
 
Anaiis Salles, Executive Director of the Green Sanctuary Earth Institute of Pennsylvania.  As a member of the Ending Racism Committee of the Unitarian Society of Germantown in Philadelphia, Anaiis is working toward partnership with organizations against mass incarceration.
 
Jonathan W. Hutto, Sr., a PhD student at Howard University. Jonathan previously served as Community Outreach Director and a Program Coordinator for Amnesty International. He helped to initiate a police accountability project in Prince George’s County. Jonathan was once Howard's Student Body President, and he organized students for the historic Million Man March.
