Then came Jessie Ventura, Howard Dean and Move On. This is now the mainstream and advocates who don't use these techniques are rapidly being considered dinosaurs. Other areas I write and do research in are communitarian thought, criminal justice, international development, Appalachia and environmental matters.
I was involved in social causes and politics in college, but shortly after graduating I served as a VISTA Volunteer in Birmingham, Alabama. I worked with indigent defendants in a county jail as part of a pre-trial release program. They were poor, many used drugs and many came from neighborhoods that lacked hope. I was horrified by what I saw and I knew then that I wanted to change some of those situations.
While in graduate school, I worked for a National Center for Volunteers in Criminal Justice. I've been a practitioner, mostly in child welfare and criminal justice. I started teaching at one of The University of Virginia branch campuses in 1980 and over the last quarter of a century have had the privilege of working with a number of America's future leaders.
