After 10 months of intensive coaching, Mr. F. was able to take another huge step toward sustainable living. Mr F. was able to talk about the turning points in his life that led him to where he is. By facing his past, Mr. F begins the transition from victim status to social activist. He is moved and angered by the injustice he has seen, and we are helping him find ways to use this knowledge of power systems and his passion for change to cultivate meaning and purpose in his life.
So often systemic injustice traps people like Mr. F in a cycle of incarceration and homelessness, followed by re-incarceration. Discrimination based on criminal records continues to victimize those whose debt to society should have been accounted as paid. Release from incarceration does not generally equate to freedom in the United States criminal injustice system.
