Angela Stanton - King
Founder of American King Foundation
Angela has also formed several organisations dedicated to restoring values, healing victims of sexual abuse, and assisting disadvantaged persons. As a community activist, the accomplished writer, speaker, founder, and philanthropist uses her life story, a testimony of redemption, to make a profound positive impact in today’s social and political climate. Her agenda of prison reform and family unification brings hope to all Americans.
Angela is a criminal justice reform advocate who helped pass the First Step Act signed into law by President Donald J. Trump on December 18, 2019. Her story of being chained to a bed during childbirth encouraged President Trump to enact laws making it illegal for women to be chained. The horrendous experience was well documented in her National Best-Selling Memoir Life of a Real Housewife (formerly Lies of a Real Housewife) in which Angela set the record straight and placed all her past dirty deeds on display for public view.
On February 18, 2020, Angela was given a full unconditional Pardon from President Donald J. Trump after her 2004 conviction on federal conspiracy charges for her role in a car theft ring. She spent more than two years in prison. In a statement by the White House following her Feb. 18 pardoning, Trump said: “(Stanton-King) overcame a difficult childhood to become a champion for redemption and rehabilitation for all who strive for a better life.”
