Kimberly Cummings, my executive assistant, and friend, graduated yesterday from the Women In Recovery program. I am so lucky to know this remarkable woman, and our organization is so fortunate to have as one of our employees.
Kimberly represents what can be accomplished when this State rejects locking non-violent, disease addicted women AND men and turns to treatment alternatives. When will political leaders demonstrate leadership and stand up for jail diversion approaches for non-violent offenders that are more effective AND more cost-effective? Congratulations, Kimberly. Your mission is only beginning.
