Sybrina Fulton created the Circle of Mothers as a way to empower women. The purpose of the Circle of Mothers is to bring together mothers who have lost children or family members to senseless gun violence for the purpose of healing, empowerment, and fellowship towards the larger aim of community building. This will be done by:1. Providing an opportunity for mothers who have experienced the loss of children to senseless gun violence to engage in experiential restoration activities that will equip them to self-manage their coping and healing process.2. Bringing together a group of women from communities nationwide who are natural stakeholders to engage in a simplified strategic planning session for the Circle of Mothers program to prevent violent deaths in communities nationwide and heighten awareness about how violent crimes impact society.3. Opening a national dialogue and form a national program agenda for the empowerment of mothers as community change agents.
