Hello, my name is Angela Parks and it’s great to meet you. I am currently a full time student and I volunteer with a few different organizations that are helping to make lasting changes to prison abolition. I am also in three different training cohorts at the moment. All of which have something different to offer and bring to the table.
My interest in social justice are simple….close the prison’s! Another area that I am passionate about is that of extreme sentencing. Sending people away for decades at a time will never be conducive to a productive and racially equal society. It’s the exact opposite.
Working with an organization like this will help to not only balance the scales of equality but will also bring light to all of the inequities that people of color face and how we can bring lasting change. I would love to meet with you to discuss this further.
