Ifetayo Harvey or affectionately called 'Ife' embodies courage and resilience! Her father was deported to Jamaica for a non-violent drug crime when she was a child and has made it her mission to end the global war on drugs.

Ife is a graduate of Smith College and can attest to struggles of children of incarcerated parents: the shame, the stigma and the taboo associated with incarceration and deportation are issues that our society must address. Ife is doing just that by sharing her story!
