Activist & Survivor
Alice is an icon for the prison reform movement and a humble servant who embraces gratitude and God for her freedom. She recalls all of the firsts she has experienced through her activism and provides an authentic portrait of the crisis that is mass incarceration. Alice earned national attention when reality star and business mogul Kim Kardashian West advocated for her release from prison. She was reunited with her family when President Donald Trump granted her clemency on June 6, 2018. Alice had been serving a mandatory life sentence without parole for her involvement in a nonviolent drug case. This was her first and only conviction ever. During her nearly 22 years of incarceration, Alice accomplished what has been termed as “extraordinary rehabilitation” and received numerous awards. She was an invited guest of President Trump at his State of the Union address in February 2019 where she received a rousing bipartisan standing ovation from the United States Congress and all who were present. Alice’s long awaited release has been heralded as being a catalyst for the successful passage of the First Step Act. Alice was chosen as one of four individuals to be honored on International Women’s Day as a “Women’s Rights Defender” at the United Nations on March 8, 2019. Read More >
