Brown explores connections between the Society of Friends and reforms of the criminal justice system. His aim is to encourage Friends to understand their historical roots and to engage in restorative justice activities and reforms. Toward this end, he highlights Quaker history with respect to criminal justice reforms, summarizes sources and principles of restorative justice, and urges Friends to collaborate with others to address the crisis in the criminal justice system.
