A family member of two murder victims one of which murdered in Green River, Martin also advocates for criminal justice reform and the repeal of the death penalty. She believes that we can work towards funding for much needed rehabilitation programs in our department of corrections and lower recidivism rates that cost Wyoming more money in the long run.

After studies and personally experiencing the Victim Offender Dialogue Christal jumped on board to start educating communities in Wyoming about the importance of Changing the Lens to a restorative approach. Speaking with community organizations to see where restorative justice could work to benefit the people of our community. Due to the lack of funding, restorative measures have not been put in place but she hopes that in time we can create a process that helps work with the youth of today and tomorrow’s future.

As a mother of three she firmly believes in teaching her children about the 2nd amendment as well as proper gun safety.

The core values of Green River have always been so unique to our beautiful state and she will encourage these same values.
