Tomas Martinez lived in-and-out of prison for 17 years. Now he uses his experience to help young men of color lead a better life.
“I don’t want to see them go through what I went through.”
Thomas Martinez works with La Plazita Institute in Albuquerque, NM. “Ex-con” is a label he refuses to use in his work with young “returning citizens”. The path to change is often long, but Thomas proves that regardless of how far down the path of wrong you have gone there is always the hope for transformation to become a better man.
“Don’t be a soldier, be a warrior. Don’t die for your people, live for your people.”
