Men Talking Mindfulness
Hope After Hardship w/ William Tariq Palmer
We are going to learn what it like to serve 31 years in prison and then be subject to our stifling parole system
As a desperate 17yo juvenile our guest William committed a robbery and he was tried as an adult that led to a 31yr long incarceration in the state of California. Today if he committed the same crime he would likely not have been sentenced as an adult or served no more than seven years.
Now out of prison in 2019 and having gone through parole, William is passionate about helping others and is living his purpose as the voice of system-impacted individuals that are now in a re-entry program.
His experience with law enforcement, prison and parole, qualifies him to create a responsive narrative to reform system-based policies and laws.
Here is some more info about our guest
He’s been appointed to the Reentry Council as: The Sentencing Commissioner;
resides as the co-chair on the Legislation, Policy, and Practices subcommittee; and a member of the Direct Services subcommittee. He has just been appointed to the San Francisco Sheriff Oversight Board. He volunteers his time with several organizations dedicated to system impacted people: United Playaz, The Adachi Project, Marin Shakespeare Company, and the former host of One Community One Mic for All Of Us Or None.
He is now the Exec Director of Life After Next - https://www.lifeafternext.org... and they're looking for people to invest in the lives of others. Reach out!
