Beverly Parenti & Hediana Utarti: Bringing Hope Within Reach

Human trafficking is estimated to be in the millions--yet only a fraction of it is reported. We talk to Hediana Utarti, the Community Projects Coordinator at Asian Women's Shelter which helps immigrants--including LGBT and human trafficking victims--to get out of abusive situations. And taxpayers spend $60,000 per person, per year on incarceration and rehabilitation--far more than we spend on education. Yet the return-to-prison rate is over 60%. We talk with Beverly Parenti, the founder of The Last Mile, the first non-profit of its kind to teach inmates at San Quentin Prison technology and entrepreneurship skills. Bringing hope within reach. That's our next Inflection Point.
