Despite these and so many other tragedies, hope abounds in communities large and small.
Hope is Newark, New Jersey, where police and community members are working side by side with EJUSA to shift police practices so they account for the role of trauma in the cycle of violence.
Hope is Delaware, where a movement of African American leaders rose up to say there can be no racial equity as long as there is a death penalty. And last month Delaware became the 20th state to end the death penalty.
Hope is a small organization in Los Angeles that makes a difference everyday for Latino victims of violence, by supporting their families and the families of the person who harmed them.
Hope is you, and the people and communities you are helping when you support EJUSA. Thank you so much for all you make possible.
