El Camino Creative Inc.
We need to go above and beyond the stereotypes. We need to rewrite the future.
Public safety is paramount
We are now a 501c3 public charity!
Our goal is to keep Albuquerque safe. The crime rate has risen to epic proportions. The only way we are going to reduce crime and keep our communities safe is to provide vocational and /or educational training, entrepreneurial courses, and consistency in addiction management and daily living skills.
The purpose of El Camino Creative Inc is to provide a solid foundation (which really need to begin in jails and prisons) for the formerly incarcerated to thrive on. Punishment will only go so far. It’s the continued punishment that forces the formerly incarcerated to reoffend. So. Why don’t we lessen the punishment after said individual completes everything and is officially out of the system. Give them something to lose and 8 out of 10 will choose the right path.
Public safety is what we are trying to accomplish: This is extremely simple. The more education and training you provide individuals that are stuck in the criminal justice center, the lower the recidivism numbers will go. You give a human a second chance and give them the tools, and a job outta prison, and that’s the answer. The government will never let that happen.
According to Wiki,
Prison reform is the attempt to improve conditions inside prisons, improve the effectiveness of a penal system, or implement alternatives to incarceration. It also focuses on ensuring the reinstatement of those whose lives are impacted by crimes.
According Us (El. Camino)
Reentry begins the second you are let out of incarceration. It begins with a halfway house or rehab and ends with you starting a new life, continuing the one you had before incarceration, or going to school and being able to live on your own.
DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION
According to Andres
If you are the best candidate for that job, there should be no question who wins, Right now these statement are a joke because these companies are leaving us out. Felons have had to work three times as much to get these higher level jobs.
A Cry For Equality
The System can treat us however they choose to. But please give us an education or a skill set. Force us to do these essential things, make it mandatory. Because we don’t truly comprehend how difficult it is going to be for us when we are released. We don’t know how to access the internet, how to apply for jobs, or how to look for housing. We’re going to be completely lost and have no idea how to make it in the world when we’re released. And when we have nothing to lose. We will reoffend.
The Anonymous Felon
Hi. I’m Dre.
When I was released after spending a year and a couple of months locked up, I had nothing but the clothes on my back. Without the support of my friends and amazing family I would have ended up reoffending. I was one of the lucky ones.
