An Interview with LOVE’s Founder, Twinkle Rudberg
LOVE was founded by Twinkle (Sheila) Rudberg whose husband Daniel was killed by a fourteen-year-old gang member in downtown Montreal. During the youth’s trial Twinkle learned the young perpetrator had been involved in gangs and taking drugs. She saw him as a victim of violence and sought a way to reach marginalized youth to help them reject violence.
Since 1993, LOVE has helped youth challenged by the many forms of violence to build the skills and confidence necessary to change their lives and communities. LOVE was founded on the belief that youth challenged by violence can be agents of change, capable of transforming their own lives, investing themselves in their communities, and making the world a safer place.
