The UU Prison Ministry of Illinois

UUMPI is dedicated to addressing the gross injustices in our criminal justice system: mass incarceration, dehumanizing treatment, lack of restorative justice, and barriers to housing and employment for inmates upon release. They focus on two main functions:

  • Working with those who are victims of the system while they are in prison, and after release.
  • Leading the advocacy effort to change the broken system itself.

UUMPI’s most recent interventions have been focused on attenuating the consequences of the COVID-19 virus for those incarcerated. For more information on this initiative and the many other programs, visit the UUPMI website.
