Tony Lewis is the of founder of Sons of Life, an organization that works with ex-offenders and the children of incarcerated parents in D.C.

Tony Lewis, Jr., was just eight years old when he lost his father to a life sentence in prison, and his mother to a mental hospital. At age 31, he looks back on his difficult childhood, and how it led him to find the career he has today: working with ex-offenders and the children of incarcerated parents in D.C. Alice Ollstein gives us a window into Tony's life and journey.
