To everyone who has donated …
To everyone who has donated to my campaign to run the New York marathon to raise money for The Fortune Society - THANK YOU! Your support has made all the difference in my training.

Several people asked me today, "are you ready for Sunday?" My response was "if I'm not, I guess that's too bad." Ready or not, the marathon is happening and I plan to be a part of it!

The other day I received my team t-shirt. On the back it has the organization's motto: "Building People, Not Prisons." I will do my best to carry that message across the finish line on Sunday.

Thanks again to each and every one of you -

Stuff About Me:

I have been devoted to transforming the justice system throughout my career. Starting as a public defender and continuing through to my work at the ACLU today, I have been motivated by a firm commitment to fairness and justice - and today's criminal justice system provides neither. I first learned of The Fortune Society while attending a conference on race and the criminal justice system. I listened to Glenn Martin, Vice President of Development and Public Affairs, tell his personal story and speak movingly about the disproportionate number of people of color stuck in a broken system. I know that we will only achieve the change we seek by working together, and I am committed to working with The Fortune Society and others who seek fairness and justice.
