“ I can hear Maura’s voice, and I hope you can too.”--- Jeff Binkley


In November 2018, Maura lost her life in a multiple-victim shooting at a Tallahassee, Florida yoga studio, along with FSU faculty member, Dr. Nancy Van Vessem. Six other people were seriously wounded. 

The Maura's Voice Research Fund was established by Maura's parents, Jeff and Margaret Binkley, in memory of Maura Binkley, a young woman who dedicated her life to serving others. Maura was a senior at FSU who planned to continue the course of her generous life by participating after graduation in the Fulbright Scholarship program or Teach for America. 

Maura's Voice Research Fund (Maura's Voice) will serve to realize the vision of deepening the scientific understanding of and the effective responses to the epidemic of gun violence in America. Maura's Voice will champion a unique and robust focus on researching and responding to the complex causes and effects of firearm violence. The Fund will develop knowledge for and test innovative approaches to forensic evaluation, management, treatment, and prevention strategies, as well as for sound policy development and implementation. 

The FSU College of Social Work is committed to developing and testing "real world" approaches that change lives and communities through effective practices and policy reforms. Maura's Voice will synergize and build upon the College of Social Work and Florida State University's current research initiatives with a targeted focus on firearm violence, particularly the interacting phenomena of gun violence and behavioral health.
