Achieiving Impossible Dreams
When was the last time you were part of an incredibly inspiring group of people achieving impossible dreams?Richard Branson visiting Amity Foundation in Los Angeles to meet studends working together to fight the roots of addiction and becoming productive citizens
Richard Branson visited Amity Foundation's Los Angeles campus, Amistad de Los Angeles,

40% of people incarcerated in California – or 150,000 people - are from LA county. By locking them up, we are not solving problems, we are risking our collective futures; for every 200 women locked up, more than 900 children grow up relying on strained child protective services and alternative living situations. Imagine what we are doing by building prisons when we can build schools and help restore people and families. It’s not about bad apples; it’s about bad barrels.
