A coalition of Christian leaders that includes the Reverend Robina Winbush of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) has released a statement tied to Easter calling for the end of the war on drugs and mass incarceration.
“The ministry of Jesus the Christ was about challenging unjust systems that held individuals and marginalized communities in bondage,” says Winbush, the PC(USA)’s Associate for Ecumenical Relations and President of Churches Uniting In Christ. “He empowered his disciples to touch lives and tear down strongholds of captivity. He commissioned them to care for the most vulnerable in society and give witness to the reign of God marked by justice.”
