"I've always envisioned creating and establishing a digitized media broadcast vehicle for the benefit of marginalized and underserved people", said Elaine Sutton Mbionwu, Founder of NxGen Media and host of The Justice Beat. "The opportunity to partner with Khalil Osiris, whom I've known for several years, and his web-based reentry initiative, 1NetworkUSA, allows me to provide my listeners with free resources and access to new job opportunities."

"Our aim is to provide people impacted by incarceration direct access to resources and opportunities to build better lives for themselves and their families", said Khalil Osiris, Founder of RFN and 1NetworkUSA. "Our platform and mobile app services are also available to community organizations, companies that hire returning citizens, and correctional facilities, including correctional staff members and their families."
