Listen to our Program Manager, Phil Melendez on “Stories of Transformation with Baktash Ahadi”
A Transformational Story of Healing and Forgiveness After Being Sentenced to Life in Prison with Philip Melendez: Listen to the episode here.
Philip Melendez was 19 years old when he committed a double homicide and was sentenced to life in prison with no possibility of parole by the State of California.
Mass and static incarceration will not be solved unless we address that which we are most afraid to talk about: violent crime, and/or those serving life sentences. Our mission is to change the way society and the justice system respond to violence and harm. From Proximity to policy.
