Meet a young man on the frontline of the fight for criminal justice reform. When Ismael Nazario was just shy of eighteen, he was arrested for robbery and sent to Rikers Island, where he spent 300 days in solitary confinement before he was ever convicted of a crime. His story was part of a report by the Center For Investigative Reporting focusing on teens in solitary confinement. Now he works as a case manager for the New York City based @fortunesociety , where he helps former inmates from New York's Rikers Island jail reintegrate into society after their release. @amplifierart has teamed up with Ismael and @performingstatistics this school year to bring artwork and teaching tools outlining real world action into classrooms.
