Pamela Montgomery-Bosley

Co-founder of Purpose Over Pain

2020 Chicago Peace Fellow

Pam Bosley graduated from Olivet University with a bachelor’s degree in business administration and spent more than 20 years as a banker. But after one of her sons, Terrell Bosley, was shot and killed on the grounds of a church in 2006, she decided to make a difference in the lives of youths and parents whose children were taken by violence. As St. Sabina’s violence prevention manager, Bosley has empowered young people to be leaders and self-advocates, guiding them to discover their own voices and abilities to bring change to their communities. Bosley is also the co-founder of Purpose Over Pain, an organization founded to support parents who have lost children to violence, advocate for common-sense gun measures, and provide a safe space for youth. She also is the president and founder of The Terrell Bosley Anti-Violence Association, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping youth and families in need.
