Manuel La Fontaine

Legal Services for Prisoners with Children
Organizer
San Francisco, CA, USA


Manuel La Fontaine is an Organizer for All of Us or None – a project of Legal Services for Prisoners with Children.  He helps build the voices, visibility, and leadership of people and communities most impacted by incarceration.  Manuel has extensive community organizing, relationship building, and facilitation experience.  As a former captive and survivor of California’s Dept. of Corrections, better known as the Punishment System by its survivors, he strives to help transform the narrative on how current and formerly-incarcerated people are framed by dominant society to one that promotes a culture of healing through restorative & transformative practices.  Prior to joining All of Us or None in 2008, Manuel was the outreach coordinator for Project Rebound, a unique program helping formerly-incarcerated people obtain educational objectives at San Francisco State University.  He was also formerly with the Second Chance Program in E.O.P.S at City College of San Francisco.
