Glenn E. Martin, Founder of JustLeadershipUSA, Says He Met Some of America’s Best and Brightest While In Prison

Tuesday, May 10, 2016

Martin is a formerly incarcerated person, in a country where 70 million Americans have a criminal record on file. The JustLeadershipUSA founder raised his powerful voice to show the injustice of the system as well as the obstacles those who are cycled through the system face when they try to leave it behend.

“In my experience, people go to prison and they learn how to live without hope, opportunity and compassion so they can survive,” he said, but adding, “I met some America’s best and brightest while I was in prison and that’s not the conversation we tend to have about people who get locked up.”
