Our goal with Everything I Am is to bring awareness to a crisis that has been ignored in our nation. Recidivism has plagued our country for generations, and the reality is much more complicated than the Bureau of Justice makes it out to seem. The tendency to relapse into a condition or mode of behavior can be challenging to understand. Still, for those with a criminal past, it can be impossible to find success in re-entry. We at Everything I Am aim to be more than a brand, but a community for people of all walks of life to come to and be accepted no matter their past. We understand that when it comes to changing your life, studies show it is important that returning citizens continue to see the effect of positivity in the community around them.
