On 10-15-21, 914United celebrated what they call “The Freedom Dinner” - a black tie affair in honor of our Co-founder & Executive Director Jonathan Alvarez’s 3rd year anniversary of being a free person 🥳🥂🥳🥂
—
Jonathan has served a 15-year prison sentence from the age of 17 to 30 - and returned home on 10-15-18 and has crossed many milestones since then.
—
The Freedom Dinner speaks not only to his post-release successes but to the continuous growth and progress of 914United, his team and close ones who supported his vision throughout the process. 
—
This celebration will be the first of many more.
—
Next year on 10-15-22, we would be launching the “Freedom Gala” to assemble public officials, community members, nonprofit leaders, & local entrepreneurs to celebrate the formerly incarcerated who are successfully leading professional and entrepreneurial roles in their communities - the many men and women who served time and have rebranded the meaning of life after prison. All too often the narrative associated with returning citizens have negative meaning and do not tell the whole story. 
—
The Freedom Gala will challenge that narrative and elevate the successful Reentry stories that most do not hear about. 
—
914United will work to make this an annual event - and ultimately a holiday called Freedom Day. 
—
Cheers to our Co-founder and many individuals who share a similar story!
