About Me

Hello Friends,

I was a person at one time, many years past.  Then I became a father, divorced, accused of abuse, a criminal, now an ex-con and no where to work, no way to forge a new life thanks to the arhaic beliefs of modern America.

Once a cornerstone of the community, business owner and middle manager for other firms and an honorably discharged captain of The US Army, Army Reserve and The National Guard. 

Today, ten years after fully completing my sentence and residual punishments, my conviction shows up in my face everytime I apply for a job.  To say the least at age 51 another descriminatory ferreting tactic used by business, I am still unemployed and have been now for two years and three months.

This phobia and I believe the illegality of formenting a lifetime of torment, disbarment from society of good people needs to end.  You talk on your site about how to save our youth?  Don't try to do it after the fact, many times it is then too late.

Treat these major issues as a crime in commission, interdict these event from being allowed to occur.  I firmly believe that a person, a parent that is NOT allowed to provide for themselves or their loved ones kills not only that person but the whole of the family, no matter how strong the ties may be.  That friend is the ultimate key in prevention, a child able to see and feel and live as normal a life as society allows today.  To se parents who work hard, that are together and when time is free, the family plays and stays together, enjoying each other like the breth of life itself.

For me fatherhood has long been destroyed by a broken and often manipulated criminal justuce system.  However what about folks that have a young life, who may have a family or now want one, their's does not have to die by the sam sword as did mine.  We need to correct a continuing cycle of family criminality permeated and reinfoced by a system that refuses to believe that good can come of bad. That once a convict does not make a person a perrenial threat to society.

I apologize, this was suppose to be about me but "me" is dead and long gone. Now it has to be about you.

About Me

I am a proud formerly incarcerated 45 year old women. I have spent the time since I have been home dealing with women who have had trouble in transitioning from jails and prisons to home. I am one of the original members of WORTH, and Tina Reynolds has been a constant mentor in my life. I have a long resume just like any of us, but the thing that resonates in my spirit is women's emotional and mental health after incarceration. I also am the Co Founder of a group called Changing the CD. This is a lesbian based support group that helps couples in duress dealing with tough relationship issues. I also am in school for my Master's Degree in Psychology...my focus is Applied Behvioral Analysis. I connect my studies to my support group and to my work for formerly incarcerated people with the thought that when you change a person's way of thinking, you inevitably change the behavior.
