End mass incarceration
As people have many different reasons that lead them to get into these places and situations, what may work for some people will not work for others.
It happens too often
Individuals in prison are forgotten about by society, even in cases, by their own family, looked down upon; thus, leaving them worse off than when they entered the prison system.

When the only support these individuals find is through negative activities, and the position against them is to punish them, rehabilitation is far from the forefront.
A social enterprise
A Poem out of Designed Conviction by Dean Rey Salinas, incarcerated artist
We are taking a proactive approach with the goal of ending mass incarceration.
We are bringing hope into prison through Designed Conviction The Magazine, capturing stories of individuals having success upon their release. As well as people that are making a positive impact while currently still incarcerated, displaying, beautiful works of art from inside and offering the opportunity to bring ideas to life and get exposure for positive works.
