Washington, D.C.— Prison Fellowship®, the nation’s largest Christian nonprofit serving prisoners, former prisoners, and their families, is partnering with multi Grammy Award-winning platinum artist Lecrae to perform at a Hope Event™ for men at the St. Clair Prison in Springville, AL. That prison is one of America's most violent prison systems. Here's an excerpt from a 2019 news article:
"Is this why it’s so hard to fix Alabama’s legacy prison problems? Indifference to human suffering justified by contempt for criminals, how does it persist in a place full of people who claim to be Christian?
The majority of people in Alabama prisons are poor and black. The people who care about them have been drowned out by a mindset of tough on crime, regardless of the consequences ... Will Alabama see this through or continue to look away? The clock is ticking."
