If current trends continue, one in four black males born today can expect to spend time in prison. This is an outrage. This is the destruction of a generation. ...We must invest in jobs and education, not jails and incarceration. We must end private prisons and detention centers in the U.S. The time is long overdue for real criminal justice reform.

Last night we were thrilled to welcome back to our Professional Development Series Program, former participant Coss Marte. Coss, who launched his very successful fitness company, Coss Athletics, came back to teach a workshop to current participants on starting your own business.

The packed class was eager to hear the steps Coss took in building his company from scratch but perhaps the most inspiring part of the class was seeing how successful Coss has become in such a short time after leaving prison. Our participants were inspired and energized and many felt, for the first time, the possibility that they too could be successful.

With few job prospects after leaving prison, a former drug dealer opened a gym to teach a workout regimen he developed behind bars.
