As a founding member of the CT Survivors of Homicide in 1983, Donna Gore and other families  were trying to cope with the murder of a family member or someone else close to them. They met to support each other and to share information about the criminal justice system.  The group has become… “outspoken advocates for all victims of violent crime, for fair compensation to victims, and for public policy and understanding that reduces the senseless violence sweeping our communities.”

  1. It was my first time attending the group, when Donna shared her story. I enjoy the presentation. I plan to purchase here book within the next week. I love the fact that there is support for individuals who’ve lost a loved on to homicide. My 22 year old daughter was shot and killed by her boyfriend on May 7, 2016. Just one day before Mother’s day, and 58 days after she gave birth to her first child. The pain and loneliness is unbearable at times. Thanks to this group I’m learning how to deal with the emptiness.
