Mothers Over Murder (MOM) is a community action grief support group that supports parents and families that have lost their youth to senseless acts of violence. These Mothers work to support parents to navigate the healing journey and the court process as well as work in the community to reduce violence. Representatives will be on hand to answer questions.
