Solidarity Beyond the Walls (prison justice group)
Church of the Abiding Savior, Lutheran in Durham, NC is now home to a prison justice group, Solidarity Beyond the Walls.
We connect prisoners to pen pals on the outside and then, as a community of prisoners and ‘free world’ allies, work together to advocate for prisoners’ civil and human rights and for the transformation of the prison industrial complex into something more humane. We meet on the first and third Sundays of each month at 2pm on Zoom. We also hold periodic orientation sessions for new participants. Check us out on Facebook and Twitter.
