Five is a long-time advocate within the criminal justice space who has authored policies to reduce solitary confinement, founded Incarcerated Nation, and spent decades collaborating with anti-prison organizations in New York and across the country. Now he is launching the Youth Anti Prison Project, recognizing severe gaps in the system of long-term community supervision and support for youth coming home from prison. The project mentors, trains, houses and employs justice-impacted young adults through a variety of academies that last throughout their community supervision sentences, using expert trauma-informed care to give these often forgotten youth a real second chance.
