Congratulations Rev. Nixon

Big congratulations to our very own Reverend Kenneth Nixon for this great coverage of him, his book, VOICE, and most importantly the mental health crisis that compels us all to action! Read more about it here:

Now a community organizer and pastor at First Baptist Church of Manassas, Nixon wrote about his tumultuous upbringing in his new memoir, Born Into Crisis. Convinced his tragic childhood prepared him to advocate for mental health services today, he hypothesized in his book’s introduction: “I can’t help but feel that my life has been predetermined by the events that occurred on the day of my birth. … I was destined to end up right where I am today, advocating for the transformation of the mental health system in America.”
