Running for


People Objective launched The Run for People, a campaign to run across the United States to address the stigma attached to people with criminal records. During this 3,187-mile journey, the People Objective team is capturing the stories of citizens coming home from incarceration, alongside the organizations and employers that assist them. The end result will be a documentary film focused on raising awareness of the barriers people face returning home from incarceration, with the intent of creating more empathetic communities nationwide.

The Goal

With over 600,000 people returning home from incarceration each year nationwide, a need exists for us to collectively change how we treat each other. Through production of a documentary film, raised awareness will further encourage employers across the country to adapt hiring practices to be more inclusive to people with diverse records. We also aim to help Americans start to see each other as people before any other identifier
