“I am writing to help raise awareness. I appreciate the many opportunities we have to speak on our crimes and our actions. I see the Humans of San Quentin as one of the platforms for the incarcerated to reach out to the free community. I knew little about the system and those incarcerated but it is good to bring an education to others. I hope the stories leave the readers feeling that these are people rehabilitating, maturing and gaining an understanding of the choices that put them in here. A humanness factor to the facade of a prisoner.”
