Antoinette joined Initiate Justice as an Outside Organizer in 2019 after graduating from the Institute of Impacted Leaders, where she later became co-facilitator of the Inland Empire cohort of the institute. Having earned her BA in Business Management from CSU Fullerton, Antoinette used her organizational background to help develop small businesses in her community, and to establish Family Beyond the Gates – a nonprofit dedicated to providing incarcerated people and their families access to resources and support  that improve their quality of life. Antoinette‘s passion for prison abolition and community development stems from lived experiences, as she fights for the freedom of her 3 loved ones currently incarcerated in CA prisons.
