The US prison industrial complex is broken and in desperate need of repair. Corrections has become big business in America and a young, misguided generation is fueling a system built to fail. What is the solution?
What if reformed felons could change the future of the next generation? Kit Cummings’ bold vision — borne out of twelve years working with more than ten thousand offenders — flips the script on prison reform and disrupts the pipeline from schools to prisons.
He replaces the current gang-inspired Convict Code with one that integrates respect, integrity and dignity, freeing prisoners to dream big dreams and become positive role models for a young generation on a reckless course.
Brothers who have been behind the wire share powerful lessons with our youth, redirecting their path, and seeking to end violence in the streets and in their hearts.
The proven success of Kit’s Power of Peace Project lays the groundwork for a future with less violence, falling prison populations, and a more sound and just prison system.
