Two million square feet of hope.
At FREE, we believe that everyone deserves a second chance. That’s why we're creating the first-of-its-kind marijuana grow facility that employs people of color who have been formally incarcerated for marijuana related offenses. All revenue generated will go toward our programs and communities.

In some places, it’s an outrageous 30:1 ratio.
And overall Blacks are 10x more likely to go to prison for drugs than whites.
There’s strength in these numbers.

Who we’re helping and why.
FREE Reentry exists to help formerly incarcerated men and women make successful, meaningful reentries into life. Having gainful employment is a huge part of it. That’s why our marijuana grow facility will hire the formerly incarcerated, because everyone deserves a second chance.
