Create safe spaces for radical healing and transformation, to ensure the sustainability of the movement and develop community-driven approaches to reducing the cycles of violence and victimization. Promote communication, healing, and forgiveness among survivors of homicide, and those impacted by incarceration.
WAB2G leadership engagement in advocacy and programs that recognize and demonstrate the power and influence that mothers who have been affected on both sides of violence can have when they choose to heal in the community and take collective action in order to interrupt the cycles of violence.
Understand and use of Principles of Peace and Cycles of Healing to create community change agents by providing training in trauma-informed care which fosters and builds personal resilience and promotes intergenerational healing and self-care.
