EDI is focused on raising awareness of issues surrounding criminal, educational and social reform. Our time is spent equally sharing at educational institutions, conferences/forums and various venues. Our belief is that “those who are closer to the problem are also those closer to the solutions”. We are dedicated to sharing our challenges, as well as our successes for a personal, academic and professional perspective. We do not believe that we are the voices of the voiceless, but a voice to those who have been ignored. Our speaking engagements range from topics of criminal justice reform, the prison industrial complex, voting ring rights issues, black trauma, re-entry and educational reform.
