What if you were only known for the worst thing you've ever done? Not only does the US have the highest rate of incarceration in the world, it also makes certain that the stigma of a felony conviction follows people who have already served their time. After she came to understand both the frustrations and untapped potential of the incarcerated, Catherine Hoke founded Defy Ventures, a revolutionary organization devoted to transforming the lives of people both inside and outside prison walls. A Second Chance is the story of how Defy came to be.
