About the speakers:

Taina  Vargas-Edmond and Richie Reseda are committed to uplifting personal stories to illustrate the impact of incarceration on families and communities. Taina and Richie are co-founders of Initiate Justice, an organization created by and for incarcerated people, formerly incarcerated people, and people with incarcerated loved ones.

Taina is a 2019 Leading Edge Fellow with the Rosenberg Foundation and has previously worked with the Essie Justice Group and the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights. She holds a MA in Diplomacy and International Relations from Seton Hall University and a BA in Political Science from CSU Northridge.

 

Richie holds a BA in Business Management from Adams State University and raps and produces music through his social impact record label, Question Culture. Taina and Richie founded Impact Justice while Richie was serving a sentence in California state prison. While incarcerated, Richie founded Success Stories, a program that helps young men in prison challenge patriarchy to better achieve their goals, which was the subject of CNN’s documentary “The Feminist on Cellblock Y.”
