Veronica Morales spent 35+ years in the corporate world of banking, information technology, and childhood education. She currently spends her time managing her own rental properties and advocating for social and criminal justice. She volunteers and does service work for mental health care and the addicted. She became familiar with social justice at a young age through family members who were in and out of the mental health and criminal justice systems. Her hope is to inspire a different perspective of how mental health and addiction are related to crime. Her goal is to make a difference in how our society handles these issues by changing legislation. Realizing this monumental task requires the dedication to chip away at one policy at a time, so she keeps her chisel sharpened and ready!
