MOTHERS and FAMILIES OF MURDERED
Violence/homicide affect everyone; the victims, their families
and friends, and the offenders family. As well, medical personnel, social service providers, law enforcement, educators,
the justice system and the list goes on. We all experience these negative affects personally, socially, and economically.
As you look at our website you will read and view many aspects and see how our system families and communities are experiencing, coping and working for peace.
"A promise made, a never ending mission; inspiring hearts
& minds to “Stop The Violence” I made this promise on my son’s death bed June 3rd 1999, minutes before
taking him off life support.
At 17 years old my son Auggie was taken in murder; by a young gang member with a stolen gun; forever changing many lives.
The murderer of my son
was brought to justice, and served his short sentence. I was able to address him (and he I) at his deportation hearing. I.C.E. then deported him.
Along my journey many years ago, I met Christina
Pelayo. Her daughter Anna was murdered in 1997 at 13 yrs. old with a firearm. Her homicide is now a cold case, although gang suspects are known to law enforcement. She joins me in my mission.
Traveling throughout the Northwest and as far as New York we take an influential, heartfelt message to law
enforcement, schools, agencies and the public. We provide resources and updates on important issues concerning safe communities and schools. As well, we take matters and concerns to government leaders and legislators.
Our commitment is to empower and motivate communities towards unity, strength, healing and peace. It is our belief that all entities must work together, sharing knowledge,
ideas and efforts.
