Susan Burton is a visionary, inspirational leader of the criminal justice reform movement,
author of award-winning memoir, Becoming Ms. Burton, and founder of A New Way of Life
Reentry Project (ANWOL). ANWOL’s approach to reentry is internationally recognized as an
innovative model that creates welcoming and healing spaces for women to rejoin their
communities after incarceration while developing as leaders to work toward liberation. In 2018,
Ms. Burton launched the SAFE (Sisterhood Alliance for Freedom and Equality) Housing Network
to replicate the effective and humane reentry model. The network now includes 31 members
located across the United States, Uganda, Nigeria, and Kenya. It is through this work that she
thrives, enjoying the progress of her foundations, all while knowing how many individual lives
she has touched and changed throughout her own journey.
