Why do you come to work at Root & Rebound every day?

I come to work at R&R everyday to help people overcome their pasts and move forward and to use my legal knowledge to educate and empower folks. Witnessing legal barriers for family and friends with records and system involvement ignites me to do this work and to push for a better way of treating people.
