Dorsey Nunn is in his element. There is the childhood acquaintance and longtime addict whom Nunn never gave up on. Clean for eight years now, he was coaxed into a new life by the rehab center that Nunn also co-founded - just after kicking his own crack habit a quarter-century ago. Then there are the other All of Us or None volunteers here to give away bikes, many embracing the chance to do what they were unable to do for their own kids while serving time. Looming largest are the absent - the locked-up parents of the young faces awaiting Christmas gifts. Nunn is with his people, the reason he became an activist behind bars and is vowing to restore "full civil and human rights" to the millions of Americans who were once incarcerated, while speaking out for those still behind bars. Now, in a year filled with personal losses, Nunn - who is executive director of the San Francisco-based Legal Services for Prisoners With Children - has found himself on the mainstream stage, at national conferences and high-level meetings at the White House and U.S. Department of Justice. When Nunn sends Princess and her brothers off to choose their bicycles, volunteers make sure to tell them the presents are from their father, serving time in a Central Valley prison. The goal: to carve a space for parents to step into their children's lives once they get out. First, he whispers in her ear: "You know, I was missing for 13 years." A decade ago, All of Us or None scored its first victory when Nunn and dozens of others filled the chambers of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors to demand that the box on city employment applications that asks about felony convictions be removed and the question saved for later in the hiring process. But the statewide ban also passed, and Nunn is now regularly consulted by national civil rights groups and policymakers. The movement dates to March 2003, when Nunn helped convene a crowd of about 40 formerly incarcerated men and women at Oakland's Center for Third World Development. "I think Dorsey and his folks have figured out the system and, to their credit, they still go up against it," Ammiano said. Nunn grew up in East Palo Alto when newly arriving African American residents were frequently met with hostility. White flight followed. Drug use in his teen years mixed with feelings of "extreme indignation over racism. At 19, he was convicted of murder for a liquor store robbery that ended in the shooting death of the proprietor; Nunn was never alleged to be the triggerman. He was sentenced in 1972, three years after his arrest, to life in prison with possible parole. Nunn was first sent to Deuel Vocational Institution, an intake facility in Tracy where he recalls reuniting with eight players from his Little League team - all but "the little white guy, Dave." Initially "just a guy content to do his time" at San Quentin, Nunn soon embraced prison yard classes organized by the Black Panthers and Black Liberation Army, said Arthur League, 65, a former Panther leader who was among the founders of All of Us or None and now serves on the board of Nunn's nonprofit. Nunn had fathered two children by age 17 - and credits his reform to his desire to parent them. Once out of prison, they reconnected, and he began working for the San Quentin-based Prison Law Office. But addiction overwhelmed him. After pleading no contest to assault in 1990 for firing a gun outside a liquor store, Nunn got into treatment and stayed clean. He was hosting a radio show about the criminal justice system when he invited Ellen Barry, who founded the nonprofit he now leads, as a guest. She was suing to improve services for incarcerated pregnant women. But in Nunn, Barry saw "a deep raw honesty about both his own experience in his life and his very strong feelings about racial and social justice." Last March, Nunn wrote to President Obama and Atty. Gen. "We walked into the room our full selves," Nunn said. Nunn lost the last of his seven brothers, and in December his daughter died at age 45 of complications from sickle cell anemia. She lived with her husband and two daughters in a Contra Costa County suburb and had been pressing him in conversations to wholly embrace his granddaughters even though their lifestyles - filled with ballet and acting classes in a largely white community - felt foreign to him. "Even though my daughter said, 'Dad, you're clearly middle class at this point,' that's not how I see myself," Nunn said. Indeed, he is most comfortable with the Nunn of the bike giveaway.
