Summer interns from both the Immigrant Rights and Healing JusticePrograms shared moving stories of the work they had done with AFSC.
AFSC invites Quaker congregations everywhere to join in the effort to help transform the U.S. criminal justice system from one focused on crime and punishment to one focused on moving from harm to healing. Quaker meetings and churches are encouraged to learn more about issues of mass incarceration, engage their local communities in the issue, establish relationships with those directly affected, and advocate for just policy.

AFSC's Meeting/Church Liaison Program works to increase collaboration between AFSC and Quaker meetings/churches. By engaging with Friends and providing resources for spiritually-grounded social justice work, the program seeks to support a movement of Friends working for lasting peace with justice.
