Maria Lopez was the senior chaplain at Bedford Hills Women's Prison, and the pastor of New Cornerstone Church in Brooklyn. Both Imam Talib and Rev. Lopez have years of experience working with prisoners, as well as assisting former inmates re-entry their communities. They offer a unique and personal perspective on our incarceration system and the role of religion in America.
