Project Description

 


What is The System Through The Eyes Of The Broken?


 

This is a mock-up image of what the book will look like.

 

The System Through The Eyes Of The Broken is a faith based book that tells a story of pain, struggle, and victory!

 

In 2016 Johnesha was faced with the toughest battle of her life—the incarceration of her fiancé Alkehm. It was in that moment she had to make the decision to either become a victim of the criminal justice system or turn the tables and become the victor through the power of God.

 

Johnesha -- These words were built on pain but from them, you can reap a harvest of bountiful gain.

 

The System Through The Eyes Of The Broken is not just a book. It’s a message. It’s a movement. It’s a journey to the truth on the inside of you. It not only has the power to bring awareness to the social injustices that we face but also has the power to change them because it changes you.

This book was written to transform the lives of incarcerated individuals and their families. To bring them hope, peace, and love, while teaching them how to build positive lives and characteristics that will make them unstoppable in a world filled with disaster and pain.

The book is PHASE I of Eyes Of The Broken's 3-Phase master plan to promote social change, reduce the rate of recidivism, mass incarceration, unemployment, homelessness, and broken homes.

 

 

 


Our Story: WHY!


 

 

 

Alkehm is a young man who grew up searching for a route of difference, wanting to be and do better. He has always enjoyed being able to help and inspire other people whether older or younger. In his early years after graduating high school he dreamed of opening his own business; a car lot. Since that moment he has worked hard to progress towards the goal of his dreams, but him being incarcerated has made those dreams that he has had since a young man seem further away than ever.

Alkehm has been awaiting trial for some time (since November 2016) with what it seems like as no progress and no finish line in sight. This has put him in a place where he has begun to feel hopeless. Hopeless because of the lack of due process, hopeless because of abuse of power, hopeless because of pain.

Alkehm and other families members struggling within the web of the system is why The System Through The Eyes Of The Broken was written.

 

 

 


 

 

 

The Problem:

Brokenness within families and communities which has been created due to a broken criminal justice system.

 

 

 

 

The Solution:

The System Through The Eyes Of The Broken comes at a time when mass incarceration, which leads to brokenness within families and communities has become unacceptable to people from all walks of life. Criminal Justice Reform seems to weigh heavy on everyone's hearts and be on their agendas, but Johnesha and Alkehm have taken a different approach when it comes to resolving the problem.

The couple believes the only way to create balance and heal the brokenness of the criminal justice system is to start with the people who have suffered from its brokenness.

Johnesh -- The System Through The Eyes Of The Broken helps individuals change from within. It takes readers through a process that provides healing, self-awareness, and truth. It starts by revealing a problem, but as it progresses it teaches readers how to turn those problems into solutions while being transformed as they are renewed within their hearts and mind.

The book is based on Johnesha and Alkehm's journey of faith in God. This includes their pain, struggles, victories and overall experience of the criminal justice system. The System Through The Eyes Of The Broken will become a tool used to teach people how to take their pain and use it to be a solution instead of a problem. The book builds hope.

Our Founder


 

 

 

Johnesha is a young woman from Oakland, Ca who has seen and been through many trials in life, which is why she calls herself Eyes Of The Broken. Growing up, she always wanted to be a lawyer, but her fiancé Alkehm’s incarceration allowed her to see the system in another light (BROKEN). Because of this, she decided not to be a lawyer but to help incarcerated people in another way.

Johnesha concluded that her family wouldn’t become a statistic but would take their pain and change the stats through the victory of their own journey. She would use what she and her fiance experienced while fighting through the pain and brokenness of the criminal justice system to create a blueprint to teach others how to take their pain and use it to be a solution instead of a problem.  She’s currently in the process of building the foundation for her very own reentry program in California which is what the proceeds of this campaign will be used for. She actually doesn’t like to call it a reentry program. She prefers calling it a transformation program.

 

 

A message from Johnesha - "The fight for criminal justice reform starts with the people who have suffered from its brokenness. Some people believe in speaking with the President or Senator, but I believe in going straight to the source of the pain; the people. If we don't start by helping them we can never tear down the walls of an unjust system. We will only be sitting back waiting for someone who doesn't care for our progress nor our change to be in charge of whether or not we progress. It's also my belief that nobody has more power to help change our situation and the struggles we've faced or are facing but us. If you've lived and conquered or are living and still conquering you could be the hope and light someone out in this dark world needs to see their way through. For me, I am now light in the prison systems darkness. Because my heart has suffered I can end their suffering."
