Laura Nicks

Laura Nicks is 1 of 1,000. Pregnant and facing the death penalty at age 17, Laura was condemned to die in prison. After serving 32 years in Arkansas, Laura is one of the 1,000 individuals sentenced to juvenile life without parole who are now FREE! Since coming home, Laura got married and started a support group called the 539ers to connect returning citizens with resources. She works for a non profit in Criminal Justice Reform, holds a job in a large corporation, volunteers at a non profit Animal Rescue, and annually raises money to provide gifts and meals to families in her community. A highlight this past year was delivering these gifts by Fire Trucks by partnering with the local Fire Department! Laura enjoys spending time outdoors with her husband, grandchildren, her pups, and just enjoying the little things in life. These days, she is busy making the new log home she and her husband bought their very own in the middle of nature.
