We are currently spending $64B – $80B a year to incarcerate people. But what if that’s not the best solution? What if our current solution is actually the cause of the problem. Jon Feinman discusses how our instincts play into a system of mass incarceration, and how we can focus on including people rather than segregating.
As founder and executive director of InnerCity Weightlifting (ICW), Jon is focused on aligning the vision, strategy, culture, and growth of ICW to increase economic mobility and social inclusion for young people at the highest-risk for violence; all while shifting perceptions, so that the factors that lead to segregated pockets of violence fade away changing the course for future generations. Building upon his experience with AmeriCorps and as a personal trainer, Jon received his MBA from Babson College in 2010 where he launched ICW.
