Kevin Shird

Kevin Shird, co-founder and president of the Do Right Foundation, is making a remarkable impact on the fight against drugs in America. Recognized as a national youth advocate, author, public speaker, and humanitarian, Kevin has dedicated his life and work to helping youth understand the perils of street culture ---which makes no apologies for destroying so many lives and families. After serving a total of 12 years in California state prison and federal prison for drug trafficking, he now advocates for young people and policy changes and he often uses the term “Redemption.” Recently, Kevin published his memoir entitled Lessons of Redemption where he tells the gritty truth of inner-city neighborhoods, living with a substance abusing parent, being entangled in heroin trafficking, the murder of his friend, serving time in prison, and discovering how to re-establish himself as a loving father, citizen, and strong advocate for youth.
