We exist to unify, empower, and activate people who have done and experienced harm to practice radical love and forgiveness; and to use our resources to empower the least loved and least forgiven people in society.
We are raising awareness and understanding of the full human experience of people who have been to prison, because we believe everyone is more than their record.
We are building a community of people that are radically re-imagining a system where justice and accountability includes investment in growth, transformation, and restoration, rather than simply punishment.
20% of our proceeds are donated to help people coming out of prison find housing, employment, rehabilitation, and mentorship. What is left over after donating is used to fund our advocacy events, print material, storytelling efforts and continued growth as an advocacy/activism organization.
SUPPORTING THE LEAST FORGIVEN
We believe that the least forgiven people in the United States are the 2.3 million men and women who are incarcerated and the 600,000 coming out every year. These individuals have the most public record of their past wrongs, a criminal record, which oftentimes prevents them from finding acceptance when they return back to society.
These people are beautiful and complex human beings who deserve healing and wholeness like everyone else.
We showcase the full human experience of these individuals.
We want to help the world see the humanity in the least forgiven peoples so that they can learn to see the humanity in every single person: promoting healing and building community.
