Guest: Jessica Norton of Survivors of Homicide, Inc.
Survivors of Homicide, Inc. was founded in 1983 by a group of families who were trying to cope with the murder of a family member or someone else close to them. They met to support each other, and to share information about the criminal justice system. As time went on, membership grew and the mission expanded. We have become outspoken advocates for all victims of violent crime, for fair compensation to victims, and for public policy and understanding that reduces the senseless violence sweeping our communities. Our organization is based in Connecticut, but it is open to anyone who needs our help or shares our goals.
