This week, we’re speaking to the founders of a travel startup called Destination Impact.They plan incredible trips abroad where they travel with a purpose by building relationships with locals in places like Kenya, Haiti, or Morocco, and then find out the needs of these communities and learn about how they can help. By simply listening to the people in these areas, Destination Impact then works with schools and community leaders to help provide basic necessities like water, education materials, and cultural exchanges.

Peter Borenstein of RJ Fund on Prison Reform
This week we speak to Peter Borenstein of the Restorative Justice Fund. RJ Fund provides full-service legal representation to lifers coming home after decades of incarceration. RJ Fund has recovered over $1,000,000 in assets to the formerly incarcerated, whose family, friends, and foes tried to take advantage of them while behind bars. With no one, especially the legal system, to help recover what is legally and rightfully theirs, because of their criminal history. We ask that you think about humanity first and criminality last, and more importantly, how the success of the formerly incarcerated impacts your life directly. When you weigh out the costs that go into arresting, prosecuting, and locking up criminals, it might be in our best interest, especially economically, to make sure they have a smooth transition to the outside, in order to become a happy and contributing member of society.
