We Envision A Society Where People Unite To
Create A More Just And Equitable World.
Our mission is to reduce social inequity, drive systems change and improve the lives of people impacted by the criminal legal system.
What We Do
We’re a national reentry service provider that leverages lived experience, technology, and collaborations to help improve the lives and reentry success of people who are justice-involved.
By providing a centralized community-driven platform, public education campaigns, and various peer-led programs, we continuously engage both pre and post-release individuals with a reentry platform committed to helping them achieve their personal and professional goals.
A Letter From Our Founder
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.
Being abandoned and on my own since the age of 14, I’ve personally known the injustices of poverty, incarceration, and homelessness. Suffering from emotional pains and without guidance and resources I had made poor decisions which reverberated throughout my life for the next twenty-one years.
Instead of helping me overcome my emotional trauma, economic instability, and lack of opportunity, our criminal justice system exacerbated these problems. This deepened the anger and resentment I felt, reaffirming my belief that it was “me against the world”. And it wasn’t until I went through a series of profound spiritual events that I was able to begin seeking a new path. A path that I had discovered, one could not travel alone.
This path of change starts with the individual, it spreads to their inner-circle, and then impacts their community. We have all seen countless people, groups, and organizations wanting to see positive change. But I believe that in order to have meaningful and sustainable change within our criminal justice system, it must come from all directions, with input from every stakeholder.
We need individual change from within, and public perception change from without.
We need systemic change from the top, and community change from the bottom.
We need a change in actions from the left, and a change in values from the right.
Although I’m constantly reminded of the good that people want to achieve, I continuously witness the struggles and barriers they face. Ineffective communication, limited resources, and a lack of centralization often hinder effective collaboration. Seeing these challenges is what inspired the development of this site. My hope is that people will be able to use this platform to begin working together more effectively, and finally bring about change.
