The Ana Grace Project

by Categorized: Newtown Date:

The family of Ana Grace Márquez-Greene, who died in the Newtown school attack almost a year ago, is launching the Ana Grace Project today. Working with the Klingberg Family Centers, the project will \”identify the most effective ways to build community and interpersonal connection to prevent violence and promote recovery.\”

According to a press release, \”this will be accomplished through research, practical tools, professional development, and public policy.  The Center will help build a shared body of knowledge for community members, parents, and, professionals to create their own roles in building connections that will enable love to win.\”

On Dec. 2, the new group will hold an inaugural gathering at the University of Hartford titled “Love Wins – A Conference Promoting Love, Community and Connection for Every Child and Family.”
