This is is good ol' Planting Justice Bilal, the 18th hire for PJ's San Quentin re-entry program, coming to you once again with a 50 day check in. Yes, after 20 years in prison, I have been free now 50 days and counting. Let's say life is wonderful, although there are many adversities one faces during re-entry, being able to face those are a blessing.
Working with Planting Justice has been a godsend for me. Our organization has afforded me a platform to give back and let my positive light shine through for all those I encounter, whether it's on the streets doings community outreach, writing blog posts or sharing a word or two with the youth we serve through our education program. So I can say that at 50 days and climbing, I am truly blessed and looking forward to shining this light of mine clear on through 2016.
