We believe in second chances and we want people to know there can be life inside and outside prison, regardless of the stigma. There are at risk youth making terrible decisions oblivious of the consequences and we want to be their guiding light. The BCP is a collaboration with current inmates and ex-cons to help at-risk youth make better life choices.
DOPE INC has formed this partnership to develop deterrence mechanisms and corrective solutions to stop the vicious cycle of gangs/violence, drugs, teen pregnancy, dropouts etc. We aim to stop mass incarceration and we want to give our ex-cons and inmates a second chance, by allowing them to give back to the community and youth. BCP gives them a platform to share their stories in hopes of preventing our youth from straying down the same/wrong path.
The BCP is still in its early stages, but we have 18 current inmates and ex-cons on-board and we correspond with our inmates through a correctional facility in Connecticut. One of our inmates created a publishing company while incarcerated and although he is still incarcerated, he is now the author of 2 books.
