Join us after Simple Meal on January 21, 2018, as we discuss Elizabeth Fry (1780 – 1845) who was an English prison reformer, social reformer and, as a Quaker, a Christian philanthropist. She has sometimes been referred to as the “angel of prisons”. Fry was a major driving force behind new legislation to make the treatment of prisoners more humane. Fry kept extensive and revealing diaries. (Wikipedia)
