Our Board of Directors

Aaron Burris

Board Chair

A shining example of the power of our work, Aaron once believed he was going to die in prison living a life defined by strife, chaos, drugs, gangs, and violence. Inside Circle changed all of that, opening his heart in a new direction and supporting his transformation into the leader he is today. After serving 22 years of a life sentence, he is an entrepreneur, husband, father, youth advocate, student and voice on the board for all the incarcerated and formerly incarcerated men served by this program. He is deeply dedicated to bringing the recovery and transformational healing that saved his life in prison to the world.
