Khadafy Washington Project
The Khadafy Washington Project provides critical response to family and friends of homicide victims in order to prevent retaliation and promote healing.
The program was named after the murdered teenage son of the program’s founder, Marilyn Washington Harris. Mrs. Harris received the 2008 City of Oakland Humanitarian Award in recognition of her years of tireless service on behalf of those left behind when violence takes away a loved one.
This project is part of the Crisis Response and Support Network.
