About Featured Speaker
Del Hendrixson, in 1982 founded Bajito Onda, a 501(c)(3) charity to help former prisoners rebuild their lives and reconnect with society by teaching them creative professions like printing, design, and publishing. Del started collecting graphic art after she was tapped to organize prisoner art shows, but the artists never received a penny in return. Del decided to give back, starting the Bajito Onda Prison and Street art gallery that collected everything from wood and leather works to airbrushed bandanas (panos) to paintings. Over the past 25 years she has personally trained over 10,000 people in Dallas to be self-sufficient, contributing members of society. Del has presented to the United Nations and has grown her organization to include half a million members from around the world, from America to El Salvador to Honduras to Africa. She likes to call them her “underground family”. Hendrixson’s trademark stream-of-consciousness style is about rescuing lost and violent people from themselves, prison, and society, cleansing them and sending them out to live normal, healthy, productive, happy lives with love and hope in their hearts instead of anger and violence.
