About Laurin Leonard

I often say: I didn't pick prison; prison picked me. It was the unexpected incarceration of my mother for a first-time, nonviolent, white-collar indictment, which motivated me to craft a social entrepreneurial career as a millennial woman of color. As the Executive Director of Mission: Launch, I oversee the day-to-day development of the organization and serve as the vision keeper.
