017 NO ORDINARY BUSINESS with Defy Ventures

The United States has earned itself the moniker of Mass Incarceration Nation with 5% of the world’s population but 25% of the world’s prisoners who are disproportionately represented by African-Americans and Latinos. More than 650,000 people are released from federal and state prisons in the United States every year emphasising the importance of rehabilitation and opportunity for formerly incarcerated individuals’ post-release. Over two-thirds are rearrested for a felony or serious misdemeanours within three years. 

Today’s guests on No Ordinary Business: Andrew Glazier and Quan Huynh are part of Defy Ventures, an innovative, impactful programme that helps to facilitate rehabilitation during incarceration and support released inmates to successfully integrate into society.
