Damond was shot by Officer Mohamed Noor on July 15 after she called 911 to report a possible sexual assault.

Her family has also set up the Justine Damond Social Justice Fund, which will support causes important to her, including those promoting equal opportunities for everyone.

Damond’s family says the fund is their way of creating something positive. They say they hope Damond’s name will be associated with the love and change she wanted to see in the world.
