Ebony's commitment to social justice began after a transformative experience working with children of incarcerated mothers during college. Her desire to speak out on behalf of society's most vulnerable members has only grown since then and her experiences in the realms of policy, research, and development have been pivotal to achieving this goal. Ebony's greatest joy is spending time with her husband and two sons.
