Artie Gonzales went from a life sentence, including 8 straight years at the infamous Pelican Bay super max, to now a member of big Hollywood productions and a rising star in the movement to correct the narrative about people with criminal records through media and entertainment. He is a wonderful testament to what system-impacted people can be and the unprecedented humanity that lies within. Follow his rise and insights on Instagram (@theartiegonzales) and Twitter (@artiegonzales23). And look out for his upcoming show Lessons from a Lifer.
