About Our Organization
The Mary Byron Project is a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization. We were established in 2000 in memory of Mary Byron, the young woman whose tragic murder led to the creation of automated crime victim notification technologies. A nationally recognized thought leader on domestic violence, the Mary Byron Project cultivates and supports efforts that extend beyond crisis management to attack the root causes of this epidemic and help build safer, healthier communities. Please see www.marybyronproject.org for more information about us and the programs we fund.
Solutions are within our grasp. The Mary Byron Project was established with that quest in mind.
