Since 2018, the Hope & Redemption Tour has visited 13 prisons and featured 5 live performances by Common. The tour will re-launch in June 2022 with a visit and live performance at Sing Sing Correctional Facility in New York.
We honor the humanity of our incarcerated brothers and sisters. In the words of Bryan Stevenson, we believe “proximity is a pathway” for our own learning and insight. Our mission is to amplify the power of proximity through creative storytelling. We must face the realities of mass incarceration in order to shift the national discussion to one deeply rooted in humanity and compassion.
