In 2019, Imagine Justice launched THE REBIRTH OF SOUND in collaboration with The Last Mile.
The accredited music program provides instruments and production training in a high-quality recording studio for incarcerated people. We believe creativity and collaboration are powerful catalysts for redemption, healing and personal development.
Rebirth of Sound began inside Stateville Correctional Center in Illinois and Valley State Prison in California and allows students to earn credits toward sentence reduction. Recent contributions are enabling us to expand the program to more correctional facilities and develop Rebirth of Sound 2.0: working with live music venues to provide performance and production opportunities for formerly incarcerated individuals.
