“This program is a rebuke to the narrative that ‘these people’ can’t be viable business leaders.”

- Tulaine Montgomery, Managing Partner, New Profit

In late-2017, New Profit engaged noted fashion and entertainment photographer Lexie Moreland to do a series on the breakthrough entrepreneurs in our Unlocked Futures initiative, which seeks to catalyze the growth and impact of social enterprises started by formerly incarcerated individuals and individuals directly impacted by the criminal justice system. In various settings in New York City, Lexie captured candid and striking images of the Unlocked Futures entrepreneurs, helping show the humanity and potential of people who are too often written off in communities across America.
