Congratulations to our newest class of Survivors Leadership Academy Graduates!

We're so proud of the survivors who completed the Fall 2017 session of Survivors Leadership Academy! Peace Institute staff facilitated the course with our partners at VISIONS Inc.

Through this workshop series, survivors increased their readiness, knowledge, and skills to navigate the criminal justice system and public agencies that are now a part of their life. 
Each graduate because a member of the Massachusetts Survivors of Homicide Victims Network with new skills to support other families of murder victims. These survivors are community leaders who are working hard everyday to transform their pain and anger into power and action. Thank to these courageous for survivors!

The Peace Institute is humbled and honored to have witnessed these major steps on survivors' healing journey. We are also grateful to presenters and representatives from: Massachusetts Office for Victims Assistance, Victim Compensation, NBC, WGBH, Boston Police Department Homicide Unit, Suffolk County District Attorney's Office, Office of Probation, MA Parole Board, and MA Department of Corrections.
