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 reimagining 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 made mistakes, like all of us, and desire to pursue a better, safer, life.
We showcase the full human experience of these individuals
We keep a running blog with all stories we have released in the past.
We host events discussing criminal justice reform led by formerly incarcerated speakers.
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. Realizing someone's humanity is the first step to reconciling a broken relationship.
FUNDING FORGIVING NONPROFITS
Forgive Everyone Co. donates 20% of the proceeds from every single sale to a variety of different non-profits that help people affected by incarceration in the following areas...
NOTICE: We are currently donating our 20% percentage of proceeds to the Minnesota Freedom Fund to bail people out of jail who are fighting for Justice for George Floyd in Minneapolis.
By funding these organizations, we are putting our money where our mouth is; directly contributing to the success of organizations that are fighting for the forgiveness and success of the least forgiven peoples.

TANGIBLE EMPLOYMENT AND MENTORSHIP
We work with formerly and currently incarcerated artists to create designs and apparel. We pay commissions from sales of their apparel to the artist and pay up front design wages.
Our eventual goal is to open a screen printing and retail combined space that provides employment and reentry mentorship to men and women in the early stages of re-entry after prison.
We will be running a 12 month program; providing them with stable employment that pays a living wage while helping them develop employable skills that will allow them to move on to bigger and better things in the future.
Every single human being has potential. We are determined to empower that potential.
