The Promise of Healing and a Safe Community for All

While our country has taken a firm step towards healing and accountability on the Derek Chauvin trial this week, we recognize that our work is far from done. Our sense of relief is brief and countered by other tragic occurrences, including the deaths of 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant, 13-year-old Adam Toledo, and 20-year-old Daunte Wright.⠀

Doorways joins many local, regional, and national leaders and organizations in this journey towards hope and meaningful change, witnessing and actively working to dismantle the pervasive systems of oppression that affect the lives of many of our clients, staff, and supporters.⠀

As an anti-violence organization, we recognize that the loss caused by abuse will not be restored, and the pain will not go away easily, but the promise of healing and a safe community for all remains our anchor and motivation today. Our commitment to peace and justice continues as we work towards creating pathways out of homelessness, domestic violence, and sexual assault, leading to safe, stable, and empowered lives.
