"In my continued quest to fight for civil and human rights, peace and equality, I have chosen to purse a Doctorate of Education in Organizational Leadership at Brandman University.  I have given much thought to the rigors of this program and my desire to become a recognized law enforcement expert on race relations, equity within the criminal justice system.   Through my work I seek to develop programs to address the emergent needs of the United States Government to address the highly volatile issues of race, race relations and police abuse of police powers.

I will accomplish these goals by partnering with existing professionals who are working on restorative justice initiatives that have lacked law enforcement involvement.  The goal will be to sharply focus on causation factors of imprisonment such as poverty, lack of education and bias policing practices.
