Survivors Lead Launch and Fundraiser

  • Gandhi Mahal 3009 27th Avenue South Minneapolis, MN, 55406 United States (map)

We are proud to launch a new 100% survivor led violence prevention organization! Survivors Lead provides professional and peer support, advocacy and political training for Survivors of gun violence, sexual and domestic violence.
We take a municipality-based approach to curbing gun violence, focused on survivor-led efforts to end gun violence in our cities. We work with families and assist them in advocating for their murdered loved one in unsolved/active cases, provide survivor peer support throughout the trial process and beyond.

We are developing trainings to work with law enforcement to address police violence in communities of color, and offer political trainings to assist survivors of violence in running for public office.
