Out of the Darkness: Ending the cycle of violence


When 16-year-old Jimmy Mizen was murdered in May 2008, the life of his family was changed forever. Yet for his parents that life was not to become one of bitterness, anger and resentment but one of witness to faith, hope and peace. They have taken that inspirational message to schools, prisons, churches and the Papal Vigil in Hyde Park. And now they bring it to Greenbelt.

Margaret and Barry Mizen became campaigners against violent crime following the murder of their son Jimmy in 2008. They founded the Jimmy Mizen Foundation to help young people play a positive role within their communities as independent and responsible individuals.
