The most effective way to end mass incarceration in this country is to begin mass education in our communities, as well as in our prisons. Even though we may be confined in prison, we are not confined in our dreams and aspirations. And the moment that we realized each of us has the power to actively shape our conditions, instead of being shaped by them, a world of infinite possibilities emerged...hence our guiding principle and theme.
