The breakfast features a keynote speech with a theme connected to CCEJ’s work. This year’s speakers are Taina Vargas-Edmond and Richie Reseda, who will share their personal stories about the impact of incarceration on their lives and our communities. Taina and Richie founded the organization Initiate Justice while Richie was serving a sentence in California state prison. Taina is a 2019 Leading Edge Fellow with the Rosenberg Foundation and has previously worked with the Essie Justice Group and Ella Baker Center for Human Rights. Richie holds a Bachelor’s degree in Business Management from Adams State University and is the founder of Success Stories, a program that helps young men in prison challenge patriarchy to better achieve their goals.
