Cerritos based-business Trinity Worldwide Reprographics (TWR) is hosting a free speakers forum Friday, March 20, from 9-10 a.m. at the Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts’ Grand Lobby Room.

Guests are asked to arrive at least 15 minutes early.

A delicious light breakfast will be served and TWR invites neighbors, business people, and anyone in and around the community to attend.

The keynote speaker will be former crime boss for the New York Colombo Crime Family Michael Franzese.

Franzese was a young and charismatic “Capo” in the Colombo Crime family during the 1980‘s-90‘s.

His notorious father, Sonny Franzese was also a renowned Underboss.

In the mid-1980s, following in his father’s footsteps, Fortune Magazine named Franzese as number #18 on its list of the “Fifty Most Wealthy and Powerful Mafia Bosses”.

According to a Federal report, Franzese made more money for the crime family than anyone since Chicago Outfit boss, Al Capone.

Then came the revelation that Michael’s own father went along with a contract hit on his life.

Michael’s love for his wife, children and the realization his own life was heading the same way as every other mob guy that came before him, straight to St. Johns Cemetery in New York City, Michael took the decision to leave the crime life.

An act previously thought impossible, Michael Franzese publicly walked away from the Colombo family and organized crime.

During his time in prison, Michael discovered the Bible. Devouring its contents Michael found parallels between the Good Book’s teachings and his experiences in the crime life, which translated into Michael developing his own unique religious perspective and faith.

A faith that is directly responsible for his still being alive today.

Determined to use the compelling experiences of his former life for the benefit of corporate executives, professional and student athletes, at-risk youth, church audiences, and for anyone seeking the inspiration to beat the odds and make positive changes in their lives, he has become a highly regarded motivator and a source of invaluable information.

Franzese candidly describes how he survived dozens of grand jury appearances, 5 major racketeering indictments, 5 criminal trials, 7 years in prison and a Mafia death sentence.  He tells how he engaged bankers, corporate executives, union officials and professional and student athletes in a wide variety of financial scams.

His open and honest presentations are fresh and unique.  Audiences get captivated by stories of his personal experiences in organized crime and genuinely affected by his powerful anti-crime messages and eye opening revelations.

The event is free to all and takes place this Friday March 20 from 9-10 a.m. at the CCPA.
