Enako Major

Enako Major joined the CFSY as Survivor Engagement Coordinator in July 2021. She has spent over 15 years working with survivors of violent crimes and those responsible for harming others, and for many years, her work consisted of working with families and communities impacted by violence against children. As a natural bridge-builder, Enako skillfully holds space for both survivors and responsible parties, providing her with the insight to collaborate with community-based organizations, legislators, and others to provide resources and support for people across the CFSY community. 

Enako’s life forever changed when her family experienced trauma, tragedy and great loss. Her beloved 19-year-old son was shot, and he died 10 days later. She turned her pain, sadness, and loss into a lifelong fight for justice and fair policies. Over the next eight years, Enako and her family experienced the deaths of two more family members as a result of violence. She views each of these devastating tragedies as the loss of not only the victims, but those responsible as well.

She enjoys spending time with family, close friends, and her grandchildren in her downtime. She is also passionate about music, dance, and the art of self-care.
