(Em)power + Resilience Project

(em) POWER (2)The (Em)power + Resilience Project serves as a peer-to-peer support network, organized/supported by the DA's office, empowering our amazing survivors to connect to a current network of other survivors, resources, trainings and opportunities to help them through their process.


 Every survivor needs something different as part of their healing process. Some need to grieve, some want to advocate, some want answers about the criminal justice process. E + R needs to provide avenues for each, while providing that peer-to-peer experience for every need. There will be three arms to E+R filling the GAP in survivor support -- (G)rief, (A)dvocacy and (P)rocess
