Vice President of Government Affairs & Church Mobilization, Prison Fellowship

Heather Rice-Minus serves as Vice President of Government Affairs and Church Mobilization at Prison Fellowship, the nation’s largest Christian nonprofit serving prisoners, former prisoners, and their families. Heather directs a team of grassroots and federal policy staff to advance campaigns on pivotal criminal justice issues. She spearheads Prison Fellowship’s efforts to strengthen Prison Fellowship’s relationships with national Christian organizations and denominations and deepen church partnerships.

Heather has contributed to stories about criminal justice reform in outlets including Christianity Today, Slate, CBN News, the Marshall Project, PBS’ Religion & Ethics Newsweekly, and WORLD Magazine. A valued shaper of the criminal justice reform debate because of her wide-ranging policy expertise, Heather maintains a vested interest in justice reform as someone who has both been a victim of crime and walked alongside a family member during his incarceration.

Heather joined us for our virtual Roundtable convening “Examining Justice Reform and the Social Contract in the United States: Implications for Justice Policy and Practice.”
