Founder

Patrick Pursley

Patrick Pursley was wrongfully convicted and sentenced to natural life almost 25 years ago. Prior to his wrongful arrest, Patrick was an event promotor. Recently his conviction was overturned and he was granted a new trial. While incarcerated, Patrick obtained a grant and took correspondence courses to become a highly skilled certified paralegal.


In an effort to prove his innocence, Patrick wrote an article which became a state statute in Illinois. With that new law, Patrick received new ballistic testing which led to his release. While in prison Patrick immersed himself in the pursuit of higher education taking numerous college level classes. Patrick continues to receive praise and support of the professors who taught these classes as well as others in the academic community.


While in prison, Patrick developed an alternative curriculum to reach at risk youth. The Kid Culture idea has been used by professors, teachers and volunteers in class rooms and gang peace circles. Since Patricks’ release he has continued his work building the Kid Culture Brand. He is the founder of Iamkidculture.org and Kid Culture Talent LLC. Patrick currently does speaking engagements and Skypes with students in classrooms to share his story.


Patrick is a writer and has been implementing a multimedia approach to build the Kid Culture brand combining marketing and trend setting with a positive message, empowering urban youth, reducing gun and gang violence and promoting higher learning.  In addition, Patrick has been working with Wrongful Conviction Consultants.  Patrick has the vision, ability and the motivation to develop the Kid Culture brand into a major entity.

I started I AM KID CULTURE because I didn't want to see any more kids enter the criminal justice system.  Our goal is to give kids an outlet to help them stay out of prison.

Currently she handles third party litigation for an international insurance company. Susan is responsible for making financial decisions and managing the funds available.


In 2006 Susan returned to school to obtain her nursing degree to enable her to participate in medical missions.In addition to her professional role, Susan has participated, organized and led medical missions to Haiti. Susan left Haiti shortly before the earthquake in 2010 and returned a couple months after the earthquake with a medical team. Susan truly has a heart for the people of Haiti as well as others throughout the world.


During her time in Haiti, Susan spent time at a boy’s orphanage and proceeded to adopt two sons. She has since brought another boy to the U.S. on an educational Visa when his adoption would not go through.Over the years Susan has coached and supported the Special Olympics and has been involved with community events.


In 2016 Susan took on a project renovating a four unit house to provide passive income. Through this project she has given a number of unemployed minority men the opportunity to work on the project and gain additional skills. The project has required significant financial planning and decision making to keep the project on track and under budget.
