Bold Means: Believing in Our Youth

“What they were doing to this family was so incredible that I knew I’d be dedicated to this cause for the rest of my life.”

Meet 2006 Echoing Green Global Fellow Laurie Parise, founder of Youth Represent. After witnessing the effects of the criminal justice system on young individuals, Laurie started the holistic legal services organization to give them an opportunity to successfully reintegrate into their communities. Echoing Green believed in her passion and vision, and she shows how that belief in others is paying off.
