I am a 2018 Soros Justice Fellow. I am currently working to empower incarcerated law clerks and jailhouse lawyers in prisons throughout the United States. I was incarcerated for 7years in the Florida Department of Corrections. During my incarceration I was a jailhouse lawyer assigned to the law library. I am currently a Peace Builder with the River Phoenix Center for Peacebuilding in Gainesville, Fl. I facilitate restorative justice and community justice in marginalized communities of color and among incarcerated populations in Florida. I launched the first Participatory Defense hub in the state of Florida and I worked as the Central Florida organizer on the campaign to restore voting rights to 1.4 million people in the State of Florida. I am a dedicated member of the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition, the League of Women Voters, and I am the Florida Ambassador of the National Council for Incarcerated and Formerly Incarcerated Women and Girls.
