The site states: “Our Executive Director spent two years in prison as a consequence to her life of trauma, poverty and substance use disorder. She has since graduated law school and fought her way to the Washington Supreme Court to earn the right to become an attorney.” Civil Survival looks forward to continuing to engage formerly incarcerated people in the political process through its commitment to educating, motivating and liberating individuals who have served time in prison.
