Life after prison is far from a straightforward path. The formerly incarcerated face the harsh reality of reintegration into society, from finding employment and securing housing to dealing with the societal stigma that often accompanies a criminal record.
David Rothenberg's story is one of unwavering commitment to social justice and compassion for individuals caught in the web of the criminal justice system. He founded The Fortune Society in 1967, with a mission to support and empower formerly incarcerated individuals, helping them successfully reintegrate into society. We explore the power of second chances, the importance of education and employment opportunities for the formerly incarcerated, and the transformative impact of restorative justice practices.
