Each victim in this garden is united by the violent circumstances leading to their death. Families and friends are united in their loss, in their efforts to end violence, and in their search to find peace. It is here in this Garden, we aim to find some of that peace. 

We have created an index to help you locate the names in the Garden. The stones in the riverbed are divided into five sections A-E. The names on walls are indicated by panel section. The name of each victim is listed alphabetically with a letter beside it indicating the approximate location. We hope this will assist you in more easily locating your loved one's name. We will be working to update the index.
