ABOUT THE FILM
The film FAITH IN ACTION tells the story of a new model of one-stop expungement events that give hundreds of people with past criminal justice involvement the chance to clear their record and their name, at no cost. Filmed at Ebenezer Baptist Church, The Temple in Atlanta and Good Shepherd Baptist Church in Augusta, Georgia, this short documentary captures the human toll of a criminal record, the relief of expungement, and the commitment and enthusiasm of congregational volunteers and their justice partners working together to give people a second chance. FAITH IN ACTION premiered at the Ending Mass Incarceration conference, June 17-19, 2019 in Atlanta. The film is now being used as a catalyst for action at multi-faith gatherings, to legal professionals, and to criminal justice reform advocates nationwide.
