In this episode, I talk with Dante Barber, who is a Senior Youth Leader at Friends of Island Academy, an organization in New York City focused on supporting youth who are incarcerated and after they are released from jail. We talk about Dante’s prevention work of speaking to youth about his own experience in the criminal justice system, prisoner reentry, and the campaign to close Rikers Island. Dante shares about how he got into this work and his “journey of change.” I hope you enjoy the conversation.
