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

I come to work at Root & Rebound every day because I believe that no human being is beyond redemption.  No person should be defined by their worst act.  Root & Rebound empowers individuals through direct representation and seeks to improve outcomes for those most impacted by systemic racism and mass incarceration.  I feel privileged to be a part of this necessary mission.
