“Survivors Speak: Charting a New Course for Safety and Justice” is a groundbreaking conference that aims to bring together the perspectives of people directly impacted by crime and violence – particularly from high crime communities – along with law enforcement, service providers and elected officials and philanthropy to change the public narrative on who is impacted by crime and how to address barriers to recovery through new approaches to safety, healing and justice.

Join us at the steps of the State Capitol as we gather for a community event with inspirational speakers, a poetry slam, food trucks and more!
