David Guizar, Los Angeles Chapter Coordinator, Crime Survivors for Safety & Justice

When he was 10 years old, David’s older brother – and idol – was murdered. No one told him what happened, and he struggled as a teenager with fear and anger about the loss. After decades of addiction, David became clean and sober. Then in 2012, another one of his brothers was killed while attempting to stop a stranger from entering a wedding party. He helped his family navigate this ordeal and developed first-hand expertise in what needs – often unmet or hard to meet – people have after experiencing trauma. David now works to raise the voice of survivors in Los Angeles where he serves as an activist and organizer. As Chapter Coordinator, he collaborates with individual survivors and organizations through the “Building a Network of Leaders for New Safety Priorities” curriculum. Additionally, David is a founding member of the Crime Survivors for Safety and Justice, Leadership Team.  Twitter | Facebook | Website
