SUMMIT, NJ - Evie Litwok will speak as part of Congregation Beth Hatikvah's monthly 'Social Shabbat Service' on Friday, March 8, beginning at 7:30 p.m.

Litwok was 60 years old when she went to prison.

Her experiences there as a gay, Jewish woman inspired her work as founder and director of Witness to Mass Incarceration, an advocacy group seeking alternatives to incarceration and ways of improving the lives of LGBTQ prisoners and ex-offenders.
