Our History in Justice Reform


Seeing a need for energetic, nonprofit work in criminal justice reform after poor families had to pay hundreds of dollars for one collect call from a loved one in prison, a group of South LA based pastors formed LAM to provide sensible solutions to ending mass incarceration. Today its called Criminal Justice Reform and formerly incarcerated are now called returning citizens, after all, we are citizens. An entire movement was created by a small group of committed men and women of Christian faith in South LA. Well, its 2019 and WE DID IT! We've consistently grown each year in our outreach and community engagement in reentry and justice reform. Largely  thanks to the helping hands of this amazing community where we live, work and worship!  

Our Mission


 Founded in 1995, Los Angeles Metropolitan Churches affectionately referred to by the acronym "LAM" is a faith-based  community engagement think tank that connects faith-based leaders, clergy, academics, activists, and policy-makers to promote efforts to dismantle structural inequality. We utilize new ideas and innovative perspectives to transform public discourse and policy.
