Transforming Hustle

Catherine, CEO and Founder of Defy Ventures, shares her story of public failure and how Defy is her own second chance of giving second chances. She “transforms the hustle” of people with criminal histories nationally both in prisons and post-release. With a recidivism rate of less than 5% and employment rate of 95%, Defy provides opportunities for people with criminal histories to create new legacies of success instead of perpetuating the cycle of incarceration in America.
