Brady Middleton is a self-taught restorative justice expert and pioneer. He is also public speaker, criminal justice reform activist, entrepreneur, and a life coach. In 2009, Brady was a brutally pistol- whipped, robbed, car-jacked, marched to a wooded area, and ordered on his knees with a gun to the back of his head. He was a trigger pull away from death and this experience is what motivates Brady today. As a candidate for Michigan’s State House of Representatives in 2014 Brady ran on the power and necessity of restoration, redemption, reconciliation, and transparency in the political arena. Following his campaign a news article was published about his story of overcoming victimhood through the mentorship of one of his assailants, a juvenile who’s gang initiation was the reason for his assault. The story went viral world wide and has been featured in news articles, TV news reports, magazines, blogs, and social media websites around the globe.
Since then Brady has collaborated with numerous government officials, non-profits, and other community organizations on the subject of criminal justice reform. Through his work Brady has been able to bring together a network of victims and victim advocacy groups, as well as the global restorative justice and criminal justice reform communities with the mission to help better represent crime survivors in our criminal justice system and implement restorative justice measures.
Brady hopes to take the power and possibility of restorative justice to new heights and apply it to some of the worlds most difficult problems.
