    THE STOLEN LIVES INDUCTION CEREMONY The Stolen Lives Induction Ceremony is a solemn, yet empowering occasion at which recent and past victims of police killings are formally inducted into the roster of the Stolen Lives Project. The Stolen Lives Induction Ceremony is both an affirmation of life and a call to action. It brings together family members to a space in which there is an acknowledgement of the humanity of their loved ones whose lives were stolen at the hands of the police in contrast to the demonization by the powers-that-be. Since 1997, ten Stolen Lives Induction Ceremonies have taken place in New York City, in community spaces, schools, and churches in Manhattan and Brooklyn. Families and other loved ones of over fifty Stolen Lives, locally and from other parts of the country, have taken part and received certificates that marked the formal induction. At these ceremonies, families speak of their loved ones and their struggles for justice, their voices joined by community organizers and others in the fight against police violence, as well as artists who contribute their art and performance for healing, for strength, for empowerment. The ceremonies end with a pledge (see below) by all in attendance, as a (re)affirmation of our commitment to the struggle. Those who would like to help build for the event or contribute in any way, please contact Nicholas Heyward, Sr. at 718-688-4644 or hspirit13@aol.com or Juanita Young at 646-294-8344.
