Lent is a time of repentance and transformation.
Throughout this 40-day journey — one that culminates in Christ’s own execution — we are reminded that our broken systems are as much in need of renewal as we.
With Ash Wednesday just one week away, we put together a few opportunities for you to deepen your commitment to justice this Lent.
Scroll down to learn more about how you can help end the death penalty and promote restorative justice over these 40 days — all in the spirit of hope and transformation.
