People & Ideas: Ruth Rollins by Boston Globe Magazine

Longtime Roxbury activist Ruth Rollins launched We Are Better Together, the Warren Daniel Hairston Project to create a welcoming space for mothers whose children had suffered from or inflicted violence in the community. It was a need she knew from experience: When her 21-year-old son Danny was killed 10 years ago, she suffered in silence about the loss, his gang affiliations, and the community’s problems. We Are Better Together offers a way for her and others like her to heal and to foster community unity.
