The Roots of
OUR STORY...ADVOCATING FOR ALTON
For years, I have served as a useful source to those seeking inspiration, help, or advice. In January 2017, I found myself in the opposite role. I finally decided to own that role and be intentional about it. I started writing about our story, our hurt, our pain, our tears and our joy, my passions, my thoughts, and serious battle with one of America's largest school districts.
I founded "Justice 4 One" with a mission to give others a taste of what goes on in child's world after being restrained and placed in seclusion.
Society has kept victims of traumatic incidents “hushed” for decades. As a mother of two sons who were restrained and placed in isolation by our local school district, I can not stress enough how the “incident” is being swept under the rug or kept silent. Both of my sons are are expected to get over it and forget about the affects of being traumatized. While going through intense therapy with them I chose NOT to be censored, but to SPEAK UP for all survivors, most especially those who suffered from trauma.
I decided to create our site to speak of what has happened and try and change the way the world looks at autism and the families that live with it.
