My name is Laura German, I was born in Mexico but raised in Los Angeles since I was young. I am a mother of two beautiful girls. I’ve been system impacted. I’m also a survivor of domestic violence. Thanks to R&R, I was relocated to Fresno and I am now attending FCC and working on my Paralegal Degree, then Law School to become an attorney. I am also part of the Rising Scholar’s at FCC and I help the community by volunteering with The Participatory Defense.
Wanting to educate myself more about social justice work I applied and got accepted to be part of the NextGenerationFellowship and the Central Valley Justice Transformation Committee. In my free time I love spending time with my girls, staying home and watching movies. I have a 2 year old Boston Terrier named Moshi, she’s my other baby. Resilient like her momma.

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

As a formerly incarcerated woman and survivor of domestic violence I want to share my story with others who might be in the same or similar situation like the one I experienced. I want to show them that there’s  help and we don’t have to stay silent and in the dark. Being part of the frontline is a perfect start to help others the way I was helped.
