Founder & CEO
“We have newborns staying in offices,” the social worker told me. “If you could open a crib, we’d be thankful.” I wondered, why are there so many babies? I couldn’t shake the image of newborns struggling under fluorescent lights. So, instead of fostering a teen as I’d planned, I left the hospital cradling an abandoned infant, drug-exposed and shrieking. This is why there are so many babies. In a few short years, I’d mothered seven. Six beat the odds. I founded Generation Justice for the one who didn’t.
Vice President and Chief Counsel
"My foster son sifted through the possessions he had accumulated in his 13 years of state care. Next to the clothes that didn't fit was a tower of backpacks, piled one on top of each other, a rainbow of zippered canvas. It took me a minute to understand.
I nodded, I got it. 'Whenever you got moved to a new place, you got a new backpack with school supplies.'
“Yeah,” he said. “I got backpacks all the time. But my supplies just got stolen at the group homes and I was so behind in school, it didn’t matter anyway.”
I realized that at every stage of this child’s life, instead of real support, instead of meaningful help, instead of a family, he got a backpack. I vowed to change this."
