We are pleased to announce that Associate Halle Gray has accepted a position as a board member of the community-based reentry and workforce development non-profit organization for women leaving the corrections system, PIVOT.
PIVOT’s mission is to create a world where a woman’s past does not determine her future and a pathway for women leaving the corrections system to reclaim their lives, rejoin their families and reinvigorate their communities. PIVOT walks alongside returning women to help address all the barriers they face such as access to housing, transportation, mental health care, addiction treatment, family services, job training, job placement and community connections.
Ms. Gray received her J.D., cum laude, from the University of Baltimore School of Law. While there she was the Associate Editor of the University of Baltimore Law Forum, a Maryland Office of Public Defender Interest Fellow and a Rule 19 Student Attorney with the University of Baltimore School of Law Criminal Practice Clinic. Prior to joining PK Law, Ms. Gray was an Assistant Public Defender with the Maryland Office of the Public Defender, Eastside District Court where she represented indigent clients in criminal matters.
When asked why she chose this particular board, Ms. Gray commented, “I chose to work with PIVOT because throughout my time as a public defender, I saw firsthand how few resources were available for women upon release to reenter society. PIVOT addresses these disparities and enables women to change their lives and succeed.”
