Hello IMT Family – It feels like forever since I have posted a blog! I wanted to share some exciting news with you about the leadership of IMT – Inmates Matter Too.
I began IMT in 2014 because of my passion to support those incarcerated and encouraging individuals inside to utilize their time productively and positively. However over the past 6-8 months I have found the direction of my passion with those incarcerated shift towards more an activist role to effect change in our criminal justice system; specifically by helping those who have been wronged by our criminal justice system.
Over the last 4-5 months a friend of mine, whom also has close ties to the criminal justice system and a heart for those in prison. This individual knew I was shifting gears and asked if he may take over IMT and without hesitation I said, YES! So as of Summer 2017, IMT is solely in his hands going forward. I assure you IMT is in the hands of someone who will do great things with the organization.
With that being said…let me introduce to you the new leader of IMT-Inmates Matter Too, Marcus Hill. Marcus Hill resides also in the great state of Texas as I do. Marcus worked for close to 10 years with a major prison based organization based here in Texas that helps those incarcerated turn their life around and lead positive and productive lives upon release. It is an organization I have volunteered with and believe in whole-heartedly. Because I know the passion and heart this gentleman has for those inside…I agreed to pass the torch of IMT to him. I could not imagine a more better suited person to continue to run IMT and help those inside.
So this is goodbye to all of you from me, the Founder of IMT. I am so grateful and thankful for each of you who have been a part of and supported IMT. Be sure to stay connected on the IMT Facebook page and to follow the blog on the website so you can stay up to date with all the great things Marcus has in store for IMT. He is a man of God, a man of integrity and a person whom I know has a pure heart for those incarcerated.
Thank you IMT Family…I wish you well.
