Glenn Williams

2019, Ron Hering Awards

“I create restorative community by creating safe spaces in society to promote personal redemption, collective repair, and accountability for those impacted by the criminal justice system.

After serving a twenty-one year prison sentence for a crime he committed at the age of 19, Glenn returned to his community to live a life of exemplary service, addressing the needs of at-risk youth and those impacted by violent crime. He has worked at Granada House as its representative to the Massachusetts Organization for Addiction Recovery, at Street Safe Boston, a direct services programs for gang involved youth ages 16 to 25, and in the Violence, Intervention and Prevention (VIP) program located in the Mattapan section of Boston. Glenn’s work in the community has focused on collective healing, community empowerment and promoting social harmony.

In October of 2019, Glenn completed his NWTA in New Oxford, MA. Currently, Glenn co-leads a re-entry circle at Hour House in Boston where they work on emotional literacy skills and learn ways to more effectively pay forward their gifts.
