Faith + Works

Please join us for FAITH+WORKS with Dr. Bob Fullilove via Zoom on Sunday, March 22nd at 4pm as we continue to practice social distancing.
Dr. Bob Fullilove will speak on the Bard Prison Initiative (BPI) and his 10 years of experience teaching college-level courses in three prisons that are part of BPI. BPI students demonstrate every day the manner in which education in a prison setting is both reformative and redemptive.
