I’m driving to Stanford University to make a presentation on mass incarceration at the Robles Theater. I’ll help those in the audience understand why I’m taking a three-pronged approach to change this system. Those prongs include:
- Working to help people in custody understand the challenges ahead and prepare to triumph over them by rejecting criminal lifestyles and developing critical thinking skills.
- Working to help the formerly incarcerated transition into the workforce as law-abiding citizens.
- Working to bring more awareness to the greatest social injustice of our time: mass incarceration.
If I’m successful, I’ll persuade those in the audience to join this effort. Together, we can take incremental action steps to build a more effective criminal justice system, one that makes society safer while reducing intergenerational cycles of failure.
