Community Bereavement Fund

Hear R2R Chair Saadiq speak about the Community Bereavement Fund here.

Right 2 Redemption (R2R), an organization of people serving Death By Incarceration/Life Without Parole sentences in Pennsylvania, and Gaining Respect Over our Worst Night (GROWN), a community-based improvement organization, are announcing the launch of a Community Bereavement Fund. This fund will help cover funeral expenses for families who have lost a young person to violence in Philadelphia. R2R and GROWN are partnering with community members, businesses, grassroots organizations, and anti-violence groups to launch this effort as gun violence deaths in Philadelphia continue to rise.
