It’s a long way from Albuquerque to Baltimore – 1,858 miles to be exact — but Lindsay Waite, J.D. ’77, is covering the distance by bike. Her mission: raise money for nonprofits devoted to helping former prisoners reintegrate into society.
Waite began her journey in New Mexico on April 2 and was scheduled to arrive in Baltimore early this week. To date she’s raised $3,268, according to a news release.
A photographer, writer and advocate, Waite, 67, practiced law in Maryland until 2004, working as an assistant public defender in Baltimore, the release said; she also volunteered as a teacher in state prisons. She moved to Albuquerque in 2014.
