44. a significant part of his non-profit empire was for prison reform

A lot of money and a lot of work went into advocating for prison reform issues: legislation to stop the practice of forcing female inmates to be shackled during childbirth, opposing the de facto tolerance of prison rape, assisting offenders in reentry to society following incarcerations, etc.

That's just a bit of the reform work and advocacy that has been done over several decades. It was honest, humanitarian work.

Oh, and a lot of effort goes into standing with the family members on the outside of the wall. Christmas gifts for children of prisoners, mentors, community. Etc.
