"Bo & Sita Lozoff founded our Prison-Ashram Project in 1973. They created Human Kindness Foundation in 1987 to encompass the prison work and other projects.

"Bo’s first book, We’re All Doing Time, now in its 19th printing, is available in several languages. It was hailed by the Village Voice as “one of the ten books everyone in the world should read,” and has been lauded by prison staff and prisoners alike as one of the most helpful books ever written for true self-improvement and rehabilitation. The book highlights Bo’s & Sita’s view that revolves squarely around unselfishness and compassion. Bo’s other books are also available, including 2 beautiful children’s books. Bo died November 29, 2012, in a motorcycle accident...

"The Lozoffs have been cited for numerous humanitarian awards, including the prestigious Temple Award for Creative Altruism from the Institute for Noetic Sciences. Their sincerity and commitment have earned the respect of hundreds of thousands of prisoners and others around the world who feel inspired to follow a similar path of living simply and joyfully caring about others. In 1999, Bo received an honorary doctorate degree — a Doctor of Laws — from Chicago Theological Seminary."[1]
