Violence In Boston nonprofit shut down by board as leaders face fraud and conspiracy charges

The charity run by the prominent Boston activist Monica Cannon-Grant has shut down.

A message has been posted on the Violence in Boston website indicating the decision was made by the charity's board of directors:

"I regret to inform you that Violence in Boston Inc will be suspending all programs and shutting down, effective immediately.

I can’t speak on whether the decision to dissolve the organization was an easy one to make, as this decision was made by the Violence in Boston board of directors."

Cannon-Grant and her husband, Clark Grant, face federal fraud and conspiracy charges.

The federal indictment alleges that the couple used over $1 million, which the nonprofit collected in donations and grants between 2017 and 2021, for personal expenses.

They've pleaded not guilty to the 18-count indictment.
