This is a blog series dedicated to the humanization of formerly incarcerated individuals.
As an intern for the Texas Criminal Justice Coalition, I have been so privileged to work alongside some wonderful people who just so happen to be formerly system involved. During this time, I've gotten to know them. This blog series was born out of a desire for you to know them too.
If all goes as planned, each blog post will feature a different person's story about their life after prison. There will be humor, sadness, obscenity, joy, regret, faith, and more- as is the human experience. Most of all, there will be truth. Unfiltered and unveiled, I hope to provide you with an intimate glance at a population of people too often forgotten.
These are their stories.
