We help create safer communities by educating leadership to recognize, empower, and embrace those who have chosen to positively rehabilitate despite all forms of incarceration through direct action, writing, and mentorship.
If you, or someone you know would like to become a writer on HumanMe or become an administrator for a writer, please contact our staff via the Contact Us page and we will send you the details. We do not accept everyone. We are not judges of rehabilitation, but we do want to expose shining examples of real change. Here is some of what we look for:
-What has the person done with their time? HumanMe writers tend to have an extraordinary amount of achievements accumulated over their incarceration.
-No current gang ties. Meaning, they’ve dropped out if they were involved in gangs. We here at HumanMe don’t judge those who “do what they have to do” but we refuse to support it. We always have an open heart, and open arms for anyone who wants to change, we are staunchly against any type of violence or structure that engages with violence.
-Love for writing.
-Ability to articulate and advocate for oneself.
-Believes all people can change, including those committed of sex offenses and murder. We do not judge based on crime, only current actions. HumanMe writers have a diverse peer base inside and outside prison that includes the acceptance of those convicted of sex offenses, the LGBTQ community, and those who are unable to self-advocate (anyone who’s been to prison knows that association with these three groups of individuals is uncommon and looked down upon by “convicts”- those who are not willing to rehabilitate- and are frequent targets of abuse, neglect, and violence of all sorts).
-Love for people and life. When you love anything you seek to take care of it. Whether that’s a pet, child, home, or car we take care of what we love and HumanMe writers love life and people. We seek to take care of our world and engage with it in ways that are life producing and sustaining, our writers all have examples of that in their Rehabilitation Credentials.
