Walter Lomax

Maryland Restorative Justice Initiative
Executive Director
Baltimore MD
Walter Lomax currently serves as executive director of the Maryland Restorative Justice Initiative, an organization whose mission is to advocate and promote humane and sensible criminal justice and sentencing policies. The Maryland Restorative Justice Initiative was inspired after Lomax’s release from prison in 2006, where he served 40 years for a crime he did not commit. Lomax describes how meeting with family, friends, and grassroots organizations after his release inspired him to create change and address systemic issues with long-term incarceration and parole issues – a mission he has worked toward ever since. Walter is a published author, activist, and graduate of Essex Community College with an associate degree in Criminal Justice.
