Quaker Elizabeth Fry gave compassion to those in prison. How can we? We look at: The Peace Education Program in prisons to discover one’s inner resources; Insights from Te Kaipo Ahuriri, an ex-prisoner and gang member; and Criminal justice with Vincent Wijeysingha, Quaker and social policy analyst with The Salvation Army.

Our Quaker Penal Reform Committee has designed a stimulating program that will bring us together to share perspectives, consider attitudes towards crime and punishment, and encourage reform.
