Richard spent 15 years in prison for a crime he didn’t commit. Now, through his non-profit Miles of Freedom, he is on a mission to help formerly incarcerated individuals transition back into society and stay out of prison.
After his release, Richard’s fight was far from over. Two and a half years after his exoneration, he had to work through the Texas court system to remove the felony label from his record and struggled to take the next step in his life – find an apartment, get a job, and contribute to the ‘free world’.
This experience inspired him to start Miles of Freedom. Through his organization, he offers programming that provides pre-release support, a three month job readiness program, and services to counsel youth who have been impacted by incarceration.
Marathon Staffing is incredibly honored to partner with such an amazing community leader. Richard’s impact on the Dallas community is no less than heroic. Vote for Richard by following the link below:
