“You are the light.”
Jamal Spencer is a Juvenile Justice Youth Development Specialist at the Department of Youth Services, working with young people in DYS facilities to support their healing and safety. In times of struggle, Jamal has shown us what it looks like to show up for each other and for oneself.
Jamal taught us to remember the stores of change and positivity we have within.
The project: We met Jamal in restorative justice training when he was a fellow with the Transformational Prison Project and worked with him and his board as he started his reentry organization, EVOLve Together. More about TPP’s fellowship program here.
