Tina Chery is the founder and president of The Louis D. Brown Peace Institute, named in memory of her 15-year-old son who was murdered on his way to a Christmas party with a group he had joined about three weeks earlier: Teens Against Gang Violence. The Institute was founded in 1994 to assist and support families of homicide victims in the City of Boston. Today, the Peace Institute works with schools, families (both of victims and offenders), and communities to promote peace and unity. It is a place for families to turn in the wake of violence, offering resources and counsel to help those confronted with the death or arrest of a loved one.
