Inflection Point: Bringing Hope Within Reach

May 22, 2015

Human trafficking is estimated to be in the millions--yet only a fraction of it is reported. We talk to Hediana Utarti of Asian Women's Shelter in San Francisco, which helps immigrants--including LGBT and human trafficking victims--to get out of abusive situations.

And taxpayers spend $60,000 per person, per year on incarceration and rehabilitation--far more than we spend on education. Yet the return-to-prison rate is over 60%. We talk with Beverly Parenti, the founder of The Last Mile. Her non-profit teaches technology and entrepreneurship skills to inmates at San Quentin Prison.  Bringing Hope Within Reach. That's our Inflection Point.
