David Zavala, 31
David was 17 and had recently been accepted to an all-boys college before first being incarcerated. He says he was in prison for three years longer than he should have been because his public defender missed a deadline on paperwork. Now a father of three, his goal is to get more hands-on experience through an HVAC training program so he can be confident he can do his job well.
James Morgan, 33
James was in college studying accounting when he became incarcerated. When he got out, he knew a future in accounting wasn’t possible with his record. He found a job he loved doing pet transport and performed really well, but was let go when a delayed background check came back six months later, even though he noted his conviction on his application. He currently lives at home with his parents and at 29 months sober, plans to go back to school to become a drug and alcohol counselor.
