About Us

Finding Inspiration in Every Turn

The Detective Rafael Ramos Foundation was founded through the collaborative efforts of Rafael Ramos's wife and his circle of friends. Rooted in a profound mission, our organization is dedicated to fostering stronger connections between law enforcement and the communities they serve. Much like the broader landscape of our city, state, and nation, our hearts were left reeling from the impact of a malicious act.

In response to this tragedy, we have committed ourselves to a vital goal: to facilitate a deeper understanding within our community of the indispensable role that officers play in safeguarding the well-being of all citizens. Through education, outreach, and initiatives aimed at building trust and mutual respect, we strive to cultivate a more harmonious relationship between law enforcement and the communities they protect.


Our foundation stands as a beacon of hope, working tirelessly to heal wounds, bridge divides, and pave the way for a safer, more united future for all.
