Catholic Criminal Justice Reform Network (CCJRN)

Lumen Christi

An initiative of the Lumen Christi Institute that connects legal scholars, attorneys, judges, clergy, law enforcement, people who have been impacted personally by incarceration, and others who are committed to seeing reform in the American criminal justice system. Aims to give people who have been impacted by the criminal justice system–returning citizens, victims/survivors of crime, and family members–a place to speak about their experiences and to be listened to by those with power in court rooms and classrooms. CCJRN is motivated by principles of Catholic social thought and hosts regular events and gatherings of its members for the purpose of collaboration, dialogue, and seeking solutions that transcend the partisan divide and recognize the inviolable dignity of the human person.
