In Loving Memory

The heart of our work and the birth of this organization started inside the California prison system. While Co-founder Yusef-Andre Wiley was still incarcerated, his father, Sampson Wiley, was the ears, eyes, and strongest advocate for this program. Sampson and his sister Donna Johnson typed all the handwritten curriculum from behind the prison walls and generated all of the certificates for each workshop. Without Sampson and Donna, we do not know how this work would have made it to the community as a non-profit organization today.
