Charles, Matt and Gregg talk about working with young adolescents who are serving time in adult prisons. By building kinship with the most isolated and aliented youth in our society, we discover transformation that transcends all boundaries.  Charles is quoted in a series of articles in the Dallas Morning News called Kids or Criminals: Growing Up and Getting Out: http://interactives.dallasnews.com/2015/kids-or-criminals/ Get involved with Houston: reVision at: houstonrevision.org
