Who We Are


Survivors Lead is a groundbreaking, survivor-led, violence prevention organization. Survivors Lead provides unique peer support and advocacy for Survivors of gun violence, sexual violence, 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 retreats between survivors of police violence and law enforcement cadets to address police violence and mass incarceration.

  • We offer leadership trainings for survivors of violence interested in running for public office.
