We’re thrilled to announce that Defy Ventures is officially welcoming The First 72+ in New Orleans as our newest Defy affiliate! This partnership will expand Defy’s reach to Louisiana and bring both our in-prison program, CEO of Your New Life, and our post-release entrepreneurship programs to the state. With the First 72+ as Defy’s second affiliate partnership, Defy will be offering programming across eight states.
Andrew Glazier, Defy’s President and CEO, says, “The First 72+ is an ideal affiliate partner for Defy in Louisiana. Their strong track record of innovation and post-release services in New Orleans and their deep experience with the criminal justice system positions them to impact many lives across Louisiana with Defy’s programs. We’re excited to start working together.”
