Keynote Speaker Ms. Dorsey Jones

Dorsey Laquan Jones is a graduate of Morris Brown College, where she obtained a B.A. Degree in Criminal Justice. She is an Ambassador and Mentor for YouthSpark, a non-profit organization based at the Fulton County Juvenile Court in Atlanta, which serves exploited, abused and neglected youth. Ms. Jones is a former Probation Officer with Fulton County Juvenile Court, where she was able to serve out her passion to rescue young girls in trouble and encourage them to discover their true potential and believe in themselves. She is an active member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated.

Physically and emotionally abandoned by her mother, Dorsey overcame poverty, sexual exploitation and homelessness to become one of the most compassionate and impactful juvenile court law enforcement officer in the State of Georgia. Still fighting her own battles from a difficult childhood, Dorsey pours herself into her husband Carlos, her four children, and exploited runaway children. Dorsey turned her tragedy into triumph, and she gives God all of the credit and glory for her success. She is author of “Stretched Beyond Measure: When The Angels Were Crying,” the story of her painful journey. It reveals a courageous determination to overcome and defy statistics and identifies the characteristics and heart of the angels who rescued her. Dorsey is committed to “paying it forward” in thanksgiving. Ms. Dorsey’s book will be available for purchase.
