AVLF | JANUARY 18, 2022

Our very own Cynthia Pearson is one of 40 alumni chosen for this prestigious honor.

Please join us in congratulating Cynthia Pearson for being selected as an honoree for Georgia State’s 40 under 40 Class of 2022!

The Alumni Association and the Selection Committee faced the challenging task of choosing only 40 alumni who have demonstrated both outstanding achievement and an unwavering commitment to Georgia State University.

The 40 Under 40 awards celebrate the most influential and innovative alumni who embody the values of Georgia State. Through a formal nomination and selection process, the Alumni Association honors 40 Panthers under the age of 40 who are making a difference in their organizations and communities — from government to entertainment, academia to Fortune 500 companies, and everything in between.

Cynthia is an unrelenting advocate for survivors of intimate partner abuse with family law needs.

Cynthia is the Program Manager for our Standing with Survivors program. Cynthia connects with our Standing with Our Neighbors program to bring resources and relief to those dealing with intimate partner abuse who haven’t made it to the Safe Families Office. Cynthia identifies and creates new outreach and training opportunities with law enforcement, landlords, schools and other partners in the community.

Cynthia graduated with a B.S. in Criminal Justice from Georgia State University in 2008. She also received an M.S. in Conflict Management from Kennesaw State University in 2011. Cynthia has a strong background assisting survivors as they navigate the courthouse. She has worked in just about every courtroom in Fulton County as a Victim/Witness Advocate in the District Attorney’s Office and serving as a Judicial Case Manager for a Senior Judge. In her spare time, you can find her at a local spin class or reading the latest publications on balanced and restorative justice.

As the Program Manager for our Standing with Survivors program, Cynthia has been an unrelenting advocate for survivors of intimate partner abuse.
