In 2013, a dynamic group of leaders came together to launch Crime Survivors for Safety and Justice in California. As part of the Californians for Safety and Justice team, Crime Survivors for Safety and Justice set out to lift up the voices, experiences and leadership of those too often left out of the debate on crime policy: diverse victims of crime. After growing a network across the state and working together to help usher in big policy changes in California, Crime Survivors for Safety and Justice is growing nationally. The founding group continues to guide and support the network’s vision, growth and power. The Crime Survivors for Safety and Justice Founders Circle uncovered the healing power of sharing stories and taking action for change.
