Be The Change You Want To See

Written by on July 20, 2021

In 2009, 13-year-old Marie Rattigan was arrested and charged for Resisting Arrest without violence in Broward County. She was held in the back of a police car for hours and no one knew where she was. She says the officers told her mother she was upstairs in a juvenile detention center.

Soon after, Rattigan told a judge she would take her case to trial. After months in court, her case had been dropped.
Twelve years later, after continued motivation from Florida A&M University, Marie Rattigan received the great opportunity to intern under the youngest African-American to be elected judge in the Second Judicial Circuit. Judge Tiffany Baker-Carper currently presides over the Juvenile Delinquency Division in Tallahassee, Florida.
Marie is becoming the change she wants to see. A life in full circle.
