On April 7, 2015, staff of the USAO-MDLA stood alongside local and state leaders, law enforcement agencies and service providers at Baton Rouge Area Victims Empowered’s (BRAVE) inaugural Survivor Tree Lighting Ceremony. The Survivor Tree, a symbol of awareness and recognition for survivors and victims of crime, bears ribbons with names of victims and messages from their loved ones.
