Our guests for this pre-conference interview include:

  • Richard Miles is the founder of Miles of Freedom. At the age of 19, Richard Miles was arrested, tried, and convicted of murder and aggravated assault. He was sentenced to 60 years for a crime that he did not commit. On February 15, 2012, the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals reversed his conviction and declared him to be truly innocent. His case was the first non-DNA, non-recantation exoneration, ever tried in Texas. Richard made the decision to use a portion of the money he received from the state to provide comprehensive reentry services for people and families affected by incarceration. His non-profit organization, Miles of Freedom, located in Dallas is now 11 years old.  Richard and his team assist individuals returning home from prison by helping them obtain identification, enroll in college and secure housing. The group also provides computer and career training, financial literacy programs and job placement. Richard has received national recognition for his work featured on CNN and other major news organizations and publications.
  • Dwight Tostenson is Chief Executive Officer at The Redemption Project. In this role, Dwight oversees the strategic direction of the organization with a particular emphasis on the Virtues for Success curriculum. Dwight has been approved by the Bureau of Prisons to serve as a mentor for incarcerated individuals and routinely visits the prisons in which The Redemption Project operates. Dwight has a strong passion for social justice and for providing second chances to former felons. He also brings over 20 years of executive management experience to the organization.
  • Sister Mary Sean Hodges founded the Partnership for Re-Entry Program (PREP) in Los Angeles, over 20 years ago. The Correspondence Courses offered by PREP are designed to give inmates tools to change an inmate’s attitudes, thought patterns, and subsequently their lives, making them better human beings and productive members of the community upon release. PREP has served over 40,000 men since its inception and is perhaps the most successful inmate correspondence program in the U.S. Today there are 10,000 inmates participating in PREP courses in all California prisons and in 11 other states. PREP also operates 7 transitional houses in Los Angeles for those who were formerly incarcerated.
  • Anna Lisa Kronman is a Christian Science Practitioner, formerly a Christian Science Nurse. She currently serves as the President of The Principle Foundation, a charitable non-profit organization headquartered in Kansas City. Anna Lisa also serves on the Advisory Committee for Embraced:Fully.
  • Bob Woodard is a highly respected business consultant whose work has helped to create numerous non-profit success stories. Bob is on the Embraced:Fully Advisory Board, but his heart and true love is in serving as Volunteer Prison Chaplain in the state of Texas. He also serves as an Embraced Fully Angel Team Leader, Mentor, and Member. He is currently the Chair of the Dallas Fort Worth Zone of his state’s Christian Science State Institutional Committee. He is a loving husband, father, grandfather, skier, and tennis player. Bob resides in Dallas, TX.
