Michael McBride :: Mass Incarceration and the Family Structure

  • “We believe that our lives and our families are not nuclear and closed off from one another,” answers Michael McBride, Executive Director of Berkeley Organizing Congregations for Action and Lead Pastor of The Way Christian Center in Berkeley, CA. Not negating the responsibilities of parents, having other adults available to help raise kids in the community can aid in childhood development. We must have support systems in place for times when unemployment, financial crises, or other struggles create pressure that could dismantle the family. “Families do not exist in a vacuum in our country.”
