Why do you come to intern at Root & Rebound every day?

I intern at Root & Rebound because the United States criminal system perpetuates a cycle of trauma, racism, and inequality. As a survivor of sexual violence, I began to see the inequalities in our legal and criminal systems. I do not believe that justice or equity is obtained through our current system. Legal barriers must be broken down so that everyone has an equal chance. Mass-incarceration and for-profit prisons must end. I believe that no one should be forever labeled for an act they did in the past. Interning at R&R gives me the opportunity to start my career in pursuit of giving others equal chances and fighting towards the elimination of the prison system.
