We need your help! We can sustain this ministry only if we have the support of people who care about our shared humanity with people in prison. Your contribution will help fund our quarter-time minister’s salary, benefits, and travel costs, plus the costs of our education offerings to congregations.
The In Prison Ministry works to create a spiritual space where all people can come as they are and be affirmed in their inherent worth and dignity, no matter their identities or past harm they may have caused.
The outside work of the UU Prison Ministry focuses on preparing our congregations to become radically welcoming places for formerly incarcerated and convicted people. We embrace the call of Unitarian Universalism to make our congregations accepting of all people.
The Prison Ministry will also connect UUs to local and state-level policy initiatives that seek to build a world community of peace, liberty and justice for all.
Our Donate button will take you to the website of our fiscal sponsor, the Unitarian Church of Evanston (UCE). Please be sure to specify that your donation is meant to support the UU Prison Ministry of Illinois, so we get credit for it. UCE is a 501(c)3 organization, so your contributions are tax-deductible.
