Inspired by our commitment to racial justice, the Church of the Holy Spirit on Vashon Island (Episcopal) is sponsoring a webinar on criminal justice reform.  Webinar speakers will explain three top-priority bills before the 2024 state legislature to help undo the racial, social, and spiritual harms of Washington state’s criminal justice system. Passage of these reform bills will be incremental steps toward a criminal justice system emphasizing rehabilitation and hope rather than excessive punishment.

Traffic Stops:  Enoka Herat, ACLU attorney

Limiting Solitary Confinement: Rachael Seevers, staff attorney for Disability Rights Washington
