Daniel Foxvog is the senior mitigation specialist at the Center for Community Alternatives in Syracuse, New York, where he assists incarcerated people and other people awaiting criminal sentencing. His work is heavily focused on trauma, including adverse childhood experiences, childhood abuse, addiction, mental illness, and racial discrimination. He works to keep clients out of prison by telling their life stories, explaining how underlying issues contributed to their behavior, and advocating for alternatives to incarceration that will address these underlying reasons for their actions.
Since graduating from CJP, Daniel has also worked as a restorative justice practitioner and trainer, church consultant and mediator, nonprofit director, and group facilitator. He has trained hundreds of people in workshops on conflict transformation and restorative justice practices. He has also participated in community activism, advocating for police accountability, racial justice, and an end to mass incarceration.
