Susan Burton Booking Agency Profile

Susan Burton is an author, prison reform activist, and is the Executive Director and founder of the non-profit, A New Way of Life. Burton was born and raised in East Los Angeles, California. She was raised in housing projects and had a rough upbringing. Burton later in life had a son who was accidentally hit and killed by a police cruiser, which led her to turn to drugs and becoming addicted to crack cocaine. For around ten years, Burton was in and out of jail and was caught in a vicious cycle as she couldn’t find a job and didn’t have anywhere to live. After the last time she was in jail, Burton joined the CLARE Foundation in Santa Monica and stopped doing drugs from the care she received here. This led her to realize there wasn’t enough facilities for women in her position which caused her to found A New Way of Life, a non-profit that works with formerly incarcerated people to help fight the problems of re-entry. Since then, Burton has co-authored the book “Becoming Ms. Burton: From Prison to Recovery to Leading the Fight for Incarcerated Women.” Burton has previously been awarded the Citizen Activist Award from the Harvard University Kennedy School of Government, has been named a CNN Hero, a Purpose Prize winner, and has been awarded a Doctor of Humane Letters honorary degree from CSU, Northridge..
