Introducing Denver Schimming


As TCASK’s newest staff member, I would like to take a moment to introduce myself. I will be working as an organizer, specifically in reaching out to members of law enforcement and their respective agencies. I will also be working to expand our Sharing our Stories: Murder Victim’s Families Speak program which pairs a murder victim’s family member with a TCASK volunteer to provide presentations. I was born and raised in Indiana but have called Nashville my home since 1985. For the last 10 years I have been involved in many social justice issues in Nashville, especially in the area of prison reform. I serve on the Board of Directors of Dismas House, a transitional halfway house that works with and supports men coming out of prison. I have spoken at colleges and universities on the subjects of Felony Disenfranchisement and Alternative Justice. I also help teach the Inside/Out class at the Charles Bass Correctional Facility. I am so excited and humbled that my life’s journey has led me to TCASK and the opportunity to work with such talented, devoted and passionate people.

I sometimes write about the death penalty on my blog. Most of the commenters are rabid pro death penalty folks. Why is that?

Hey MikeB,

Thanks for reading and commenting on our blog. It's hard to know why those commenting on your blog are for the death penalty. I don't think this is a good representation of public sentiment. Folks nationwide are pretty divided on their death penalty support.

Also, my personal experience is that folks will say a lot of things and make some strong statements behind the veil of anonymity.

Keep up the blogging and let us know if you ever have any death penalty related questions.

Welcome Denver! Looks like you come with some street cred there. I know you'll be a great asset to TCASK.
