Currently facilitating debate classes at Rikers Island with the Rikers Debate Project, Felix is a proud member of Vocal-NY, Coalition for the Homeless, Fortune Society, Community Access and countless other organizations. Building positive conversation around the issues of ending mass incarceration, ending homelessness, harm reduction, and mental health, as a survivor of said broken systems he is an advocate for the community-at-large. He has been published in Voices of Fortune and has two poems featured in the 4Tune Society Success Stories album from/by Fortune Society. He has performed poetry at venues, press conference/rallies, open mics and award ceremonies including on the steps of City Hall, at Carnegie Hall, Nuyorican Poets Cafe, Staten Island Fatherhood Awards, and more. His periodical writing has appeared in the NY Daily News as an Opinion-Editiorial on issues of homelessness; in City Voices Newspaper on the issue of removing law enforcement from encounters with those in emotional crisis.
Formally identifying in all spaces as formerly incarcerated and formerly homeless, not to cause conflict but raise awareness to the intersectionality of the two worlds, Felix advocates for what is right, standing against injustice and using the power of personal testimony always. Furthermore, Felix is a member of the current men’s Ritual 4 Return Cohort, and working towards starting his own organization called Men Can Be Abused which is to work towards addressing intimate partner violence, and domestic violence as it relates to male-identifying survivors.
