Dallas Heroes Project celebrates local heroes, educating citizens on critical issues facing the city, and enabling them to take social action to make a positive impact in the city of Dallas. This month, the organization chose to feature Richard Miles, a Dallas local and founder & CEO of the nonprofit Miles of Freedom.
Miles created Miles of Freedom after spending 15 years in prison for a crime he did not commit. The nonprofit is dedicated to helping people transition to life after prison.
Miles is featured as a hero because he was able to take his experience and turn it around to help others who are in need.
