"Electrifying, inspirational, dynamic, authentic....The speaker brought the human and emotional dimension to the reality of prison, the courts, equity, and life in general, and the importance of presenting first-person narratives and multicultural perspectives to students. The presentation led to deep and respectful conversations that continue to this day. He received two standing ovations from both adult conference attendees and students workshops. That kind of effect cannot be made up or planned. I also connected to WTI staff because of their warmth and clear messaging on mission, intent, and aspirations. This allowed me to be curious and more interested in the organization, as well as the speaker."

"The talk not only inspired more of us to think broadly about criminal justice, the death penalty, political rhetoric in our country, and the needs of prisoners in our state and local prisons. It also brought together folks who have been working on local tensions, and the larger issue of race relations in our community, with folks in the academic community with a human rights focus - a good cross-pollination of interests, skills, and insights."
