Crime Survivors for Safety and Justice presents Survivors Speak: A Photo Journal

Do our current public safety priorities protect survivors of violent crime?

Despite the billions of dollars spent each year on our criminal justice system, many crime survivors don’t see their needs or interests reflected in public safety policy.

Survivors from neighborhoods most harmed by crime and violence - Black survivors, LatinX survivors and those from other underserved communities - have not only been disproportionately impacted but left out of traditional victim narratives.

Where our criminal justice system has failed to bring healing and hope to the people and communities most harmed, though, many are stepping forward to create it themselves.

Through the Survivors Speak photo journal, survivors of violent crime from across the country have shared their stories and their own visions for public safety.
