George Lombardi has been working in the field of corrections since 1972, plying his master’s degree in psychology to shape a more effective and humane system. His early work at the institution level in Missouri, when there were 3,900 inmates and 15,000 parolees, informed his later leadership as the director of that state’s system of 21 prisons, 33,000 incarcerated offenders, and 60,000 people under community supervision. He also served as a juvenile justice consultant in Washington, DC, and San Francisco.
This rich career has inspired Lombardi to share his message of hope for a future in which fewer people are trapped in the cradle-to-prison pipeline, more offenders are adequately prepared for re-entry into society, and there is a better understanding of how justice is restored.
