Our vision is to lead a faith-based abolitionist movement united against the moral crisis of mass incarceration and the criminalization of impoverished Black motherhood.
We envision a national coalition of churches and communities trained to apply emancipatory religious values and abolitionist principles to repair, restore, and rebuild a more just and equitable society where poor Black mothers can flourish beyond punishment and prisons.
We advocate for compassion as an alternative to punitive responses and recognize the divinity of Black mothers as moral agents with inherent worth.
We uphold radical practices of care to build sanctuary for poor Black mothers and their families to thrive.
We affirm the power of creativity to imagine new pathways, policies, and programs pointed toward transformative justice strategies and abolition.
We believe that courage is necessary to challenge structural injustices and to end discriminatory policing, criminalization, and mass incarceration.
We promote community as essential for coalition building, shared accountability, and collective flourishing.
