Mission Statement

Empowering survivors of murder victims. 

It takes a lot of love and support to rebuild lives after a murder. No one can do this alone and thus the National Homicide Justice Alliance proposes that through unity we can accomplish justice, and through justice, we can find peace.

We are survivors of loved ones who have bee murdered who have united to support and empower each other, primarily as an advocacy and education group for issues relating to the aftermath of a homicide. These issues include response and communications with the homicide unit detectives and other agencies throughout the investigation process, the resolution of unsolved cases, and the stringent prosecution of gun violence and murder cases. We also advocate for quality standards of support services to survivors of murder victims. We advocate for common-sense gun laws, gun violence awareness, and prevention. We advocate for human rights and dignity so that others will not have to suffer a loss like ours.

Hope Is Where the Heart Is

Experience the Empowerment

National Homicide Justice Alliance wants to spread our message of hope and compassion. We believe that a single action can make a difference in the community, and that collective action can greatly impact the world. Through advocacy and outreach activities, our team works tirelessly each day to contribute their part to the greater good.
