What would it look like if we intervened, with rehabilitation as a core value –with love and compassion as core values? We would have a society that is safer, and worthy of raising our children in.

John Legend is on a mission to transform America’s criminal justice system. Through his Free America campaign, he’s encouraging rehabilitation and healing in our prisons, jails and detention centers — and giving hope to those who want to create a better life after serving their time.
