It will tell of a re-entry story unlike any you have ever known. It's a riveting, compelling tale about the post-conviction life of activist and artist Anthony Papa. He tells firsthand of his experience of returning home and struggling to maintain his freedom while fighting to free those he left behind. Papa goes through heart-wrenching trials and tribulations as he seeks to end the war on drugs. Along the way he meets an array of individuals from movie stars to politicians and the very rich, hoping to enlist their help in doing away with mass incarceration and draconian sentencing laws that have destroyed America's criminal justice system. Anthony Papa is manager of media and artist relations for the Drug Policy Alliance. He is an artist, writer, noted advocate against the war on drugs and co-founder of the Mothers of the New York Disappeared. Papa's stinging editorials about the drug war have appeared in news sources across the country. He is a frequent public speaker and college lecturer on his art and criminal justice issues. Papa is the author of 15 to Life: How I Painted My Way to Freedom (2004), a memoir about his experience of being sentenced to state prison for a first-time, nonviolent drug offense under New York's draconian Rockefeller Drug Laws. He has been interviewed by a wide range of national print and broadcast media, including The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Nation, National Public Radio, "Democracy Now," Court TV and "Extra," among others. He has appeared on nationally syndicated talk shows such as MSNBCs Live with Tamron Hall, CNN's "Your Money," "Charles Grodin," "Geraldo Rivera," and "Catherine Crier Live." Papa's art has been exhibited widely from the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York to many smaller cultural centers around the country. To be successful in advocating an issue is to keep pushing it to the public. My job as an activist is to continue to find ways to keep the issue in the news so it becomes a repetitive theme, akin to a moving poem or a haunting melody. I have generated hundreds of news stories on criminal justice issues and the drug war. The power of the written word is essential in reaching target audiences to change or guide public opinion. It is the equalizer in the world of politics where justice is defined by the party that holds power. It is hoped that this book will help change the system for the better and help those maintain their newly found freedom.
