Although this program focuses on mothers who lost a child to gun violence we're also accepting mothers who lost a child to any circumstance.


Thanks Much!

“Lynching Rebranded”: Mothers Who Lost Children To Police Violence Speak Out

Who has felt the pain of police killings more acutely, more intimately than the mothers of the victims of police violence? Armed with their pain and a will to change the system, some of these mothers met in
Washington earlier this month to find ways to work together.

Supporting your child during not-so-happy holidays, by counsellor Lindsay

It’s never easy to get used to shorter days with the falling mercury. For many of us, the cold temperatures are made more tolerable knowing that the winter holidays are just around the corner.

But as a Kids Help Phone counsellor, I’ve talked to a lot of young people who really don’t see the holidays as a bright spot.

FORGET ME NOT: walk to remember the youth who have been lost to the streets

Sun, 12/07/2014 - 11:00

We MAY NOT have $$$, we MAY NOT have donors,
we DO have RESILIENCE, and we do inspire HOPE.
This year we ask you all to join our walk,

we have nothing to provide but we are as real as it comes to creating awareness, we see an issue we deal with it, we see injustice we advocate, we see people that matter to us being forgotten we remind others.
