Who is Filiberto ?
I grew up in Los Angeles and have been living in Minneapolis for the last 8 years. My day job is running Workday Minnesota. I created The Incarcerated to be a home to talk about the csareceral state. I am formerly incarcerated. I did felony time in LA County jail in my late 20s. My prior reporting explored prison labor in Minnesota and profit made from immigrant detention in Sherburne County.
What Is the Incarcerated?
As a formerly incarcerated person I have had a hard time finding a space that felt like home for me. I’ve been seeking a home that gives me a chance to explore my identity, think about abolition and claim my perspective. The Incarcerated is intended to be a home to explore and share the effects of the carceral state.
