Tony Wallin

Tony Wallin

Program Coordinator

Tony was instrumental in getting the Project Rebound in Northern California. In 2018 Tony started the first official formerly incarcerated students club on HSU campus, to build a support system for students to feel welcomed, part of community, and to simply have a space to express their emotions and experiences. There is now a sister club at College of the Redwoods as well. He also works with the currently incarcerated through educational correspondence and facilitates a Buddhist Sangha inside Pelican Bay State Prison. He has partnered with the Yurok Tribe to include educational plans as part of reentry as well as for their tribal youth wellness court. He is a mentor/speaker for the Boys to Men group that facilitates positive male role models for male youth in Humboldt County. He is a driver for the Anti-Recidivism Coalition's Ride-Home Program inside Pelican Bay, where the formerly incarcerated pick up people from the prison gate as their first contact in freedom. The program provides a stipend for food, clothes, phone, and hygiene, as well as a plane or bus ticket to wherever they are paroling too. It is his favorite part of the job, to see people exit prison and return home to their families. He is also a freelance journalist covering the criminal justice system through the lens of his own incarcerated experience.

Environmental Studies Major, Scientific Diving Minor 

When first Arriving at Humboldt State as a transfer Environmental Studies student I wouldn't have imagined being where I am now. Before Finding Project Rebound and the AACAE I didn't have a place on campus, let alone in my major. By building community at Project Rebound with people who understand my lived experiences, I was able to find my voice and calling in ENST through Prison Ecology and Food Justice. Focusing my studies into the intentionally forgotten corners of the environmental movements enables me to seek and highlight the need for systemic change.

After getting my B.A.in Psychology, I will be on my way to join HSU’s Graduate Program for Psychology. Along with Project Rebound, I am also involved in other programs and clubs on campus.

I have also been awarded to be on the Dean’s List for the past two years. I enjoy HSU and am glad that I am a part of something so much bigger and am able to help others in such a direct

Upon release after my last incarceration and after a lifetime battling substance use disorder, I made a decision to go back to school. It has been the best decision I have ever made, for my present and my future. I helped bring the first formerly incarcerated students club to Butte College and now I'm proud to be a part of Project Rebound here at HSU.
I believe we are capable of so much more than we ever realized, no matter our background or our experiences and it's my goal in life to relate with and advocate for those who have experienced some of the same things I have. 
Let's break down those barriers and make the best life we can for ourselves!
