Behind the concerning recidivism rate in America-with over 65% of inmates released from California's prison system returning to prison within three years-is the need for multi-faceted programs for inmates and the lack of adequate services designed to deter and rehabilitate. Opportunities to grow as an individual and for learning how to become productive members of society are often inadequate, as well. This is why Travis Richey has made it his mission to change the global narrative surrounding second chances and prison reform, doing it from the inside out and impacting the prison system through his initiatives.
