Kenny Jackson was a spokesman for The Fortune Society, a New York City-based nonprofit organization providing support to the formerly incarcerated. Jackson had served 4-1/2 years in New York prisons. He was advocating for real rehabilitation services in New York prisons. The Fortune Society is still active. Some of the services it offers include help with finding housing and jobs, adjusting to civilian life and educational opportunities. It was founded by David Rothenberg in 1967 as a result of his experience at Rikers Prison while researching for the play "Fortune and Men's Eyes."
