Second Chances - Stanley Richards

Imagine being told constantly that you’ll never get out of your situation. Or that your environment, the family or neighborhood you were born into, is who you are. In this episode, we’re sharing the journey of Stanley Richards, a criminal justice reform advocate, acting Vice Chair of NYC Board of Correction and the Executive Vice President of The Fortune Society.

Stanley cycled in and out of jail until he was arrested for robbery in 1986. He was sentenced to 9 years for his crime and spent 4 and a half years in prison. In this riveting story of hope and breaking free from the shackles of circumstance, Stanley is a remarkable example of what your life could be, if you don’t give up on yourself. Today, he’s a role model and inspiring leader at the helm of The Fortune Society — a nonprofit organization whose mission is to support the successful reentry of formerly incarcerated individuals into society.
