A Remarkable Listener

sal-ali-letterAs a result of Gabriel Martinez’ “Dear Father” story airing on Public Radio Remix, PRX’s 24-hour stream, YMP received a  2 page, hand-written letter from an inmate at a Massachusetts Correctional Institution. We have posted the letter to recognize how powerful one person’s story can be and how they may serve as inspiration and a bridge to healing.

Gabriel’s story was the result of the Father’s in Focus program; a YMP collaboration with Santa Fe Public School’s Adelante Program, which provides support to students and families experiencing homelessness and REEL FATHERS, a non-profit which inspires and supports men to build loving, committed relationships with their children by using film as a touchstone for reflective dialogue and by elevating the cultural perception of fathers.
