In October, CRJ hosted a virtual event to honor the living legacy of John Larivee, CRJ’s longtime president and CEO who retired in August after 46 years with the organization.

The event featured comments from friends, family, colleagues, CRJ board members, and elected officials, including Gov. Charlie Baker, House Speaker Robert DeLeo, Senate President Karen Spilka, and Boston Mayor Marty Walsh. Together, they told the story of John’s immense contributions to CRJ and his role in reshaping criminal justice policy and practice in ways that directly improve the lives of individuals touched by the system. A video of the event is available here.

The celebration also included the official launch of the John J. Larivee Service Fund, which will support innovation in service delivery, fund gaps in service provision, support policy development and implementation that advances our mission, and provide essential resources that support leadership development and strengthen the talent pipeline with an emphasis on diversity, equity, and inclusion. Click here to make a donation.
