Our board is made up of survivors and family members of the Aurora Theater shooting. The permanent memorial "Ascentiate" now stands in the City of Aurora's water wise garden to honor our 13 angels and their loved ones, the survivors, the first responders, and the community that came together to help one another on July 20, 2012 and beyond. We want to continue to honor all loved ones lost and those whose lives are changed forever by helping to be a resource for community healing after mass tragedy. The 7/20 Memorial Foundation envisions a world where all people are thriving and empowered in their healing path and where the need for mental health support in perpetuity is recognized, more readily available, and helps prevent other tragedies. We recognize and advocate for the many layers of mass tragedy resource needs, from triage to recovery to healing, for long-term resiliency. We encourage and support the need for all people to receive love and support prior to inflicting tragedy on others.
