Nancy Wright started her career as a Juvenile Probation Officer. She was FLY’s Board Chair in the early 2000s, and over the years, Nancy was a FLY investor, ambassador, mentor, and dear friend to FLY. Before she passed away in December 2020, she and her husband Eric gave a generous gift to create the “Nancy Happy Fund” for FLY youth. The fund is intended to give youth new experiences, supplies for school or work, gifts to celebrate birthdays or graduations—anything that brings them happiness.
With the current state of the world, people are now more than ever wishing to learn about how we can create a more just and equitable future for our youth. This is why we’ve decided to launch Movement for Justice—a virtual series that addresses hot topics on the juvenile justice landscape. In each installment, there are panel interviews comprised of FLY staff, youth, and other guest speakers. This is a space for our supporters to have the opportunity to ask questions and interact with FLY on a deeper level.
