The Louise Russo Story

On April 21, 2004, Louise Russo's life changed forever. On that day, Louise became an innocent victim of senseless violence, when she was shot in a drive-by shooting. A single bullet shattered her spine and left her paralyzed.

Being the courageous individual she is, Louise was determined to turn this experience into something positive, by dedicating her life to making her community a safer place to live.

The fearless mother of three turned tragedy into triumph and established the Louise Russo W.A.V.E. (Working Against Violence Everyday), a not-for-profit organization that educates and empowers youth to make a difference in their community.
