Jennifer is the Founder of Healing Justice, which provides support, reconciliation, and recovery in cases involving exonerations. Jennifer founded Healing Justice based on her experience with a failed criminal justice process that sent Ronald Cotton, an innocent man, to prison and left the true perpetrator free to commit additional crimes. Jennifer and Ronald co-authored a joint memoir, Picking Cotton, which recounts the tragedy that brought them together. Jennifer is a nationally-recognized and award-winning advocate for criminal justice reform and serves on North Carolina Innocence Inquiry Commission. Jennifer is also a restorative justice practitioner and leader of healing circles that include recovering from trauma through art.
