The ABC’s of Theology and Criminal Justice Reform on the Lives of School Children of Color: An Interdisciplinary Dialogue

Theology shapes the ethical practices of its religious institutions working for cultural, economic and social change for the common good. Criminal Justice Reform shapes how our society’s institutions uphold the protections to all of its citizens promised in the U.S. Constitution. How do theology and criminal justice reform influence the systemic conditions that set a path from school to prison for many children of color today?

  • Theologian, Dr. Harold Recinos, Professor of Church and Society, Perkins School of Theology/SMU and President of the Oscar Romero Center for Community Health and Education Dallas
  • Criminal Justice Reformer, Dr. Pamela Metzger, Professor of Law and Director of the Deason Criminal Justice Reform Center, SMU
