Maurenne Griese is the Program Director over the CAN-DO Guardian Angel program. Since the program’s launch, she has advocated for multiple clemency petitioners. Several of those petitioners received clemency from President Barack Obama during his last year in office.
Maurenne will oversee the pairing of Guardian Angels to people in prison seeking an Angel; posting news on the Guardian Angel Facebook page; keeping CAN-DO informed with regard to new developments in the individual cases that are being assisted by a Guardian Angel; making sure the Angels receive the help they need to perform tasks for their prisoners, and more Guardian Angel related activities.
Maurenne is a registered nurse as well as a board certified case manager through the Case Management Society of America. Since 1989, she has practiced nursing in a wide variety of settings and roles in both the public and private sectors, in both urban and rural areas. In addition to her advocacy efforts with the CAN-DO Foundation, she is also a member of the National Council for Incarcerated and Formerly Incarcerated Women and Girls.
“Many of us advocates have loved ones who are justice involved and I am no exception. Networking and advocating for federal clemency petitioners as well as supporting my CAN-DO peers who do the same work has been a wonderful experience for me. I’m excited about the bright new beginnings that mercy can bring to a person and I’m honored to be a small part of that.” Maurenne Griese
