The Everytown Survivor Network, an initiative of Moms Demand Action, exists for the main purpose of bringing survivors of gun violence together to build a community of support. These survivors say it is a powerful experience to meet, share their personal stories, and advocate alongside other survivors because they understand and care for one another in a unique way.
Hear more about this organization and share the stories of local residents who have lost a family member or a friend to gun violence. The spokesperson for the group is Janice Walker, the lead in this initiative. She will be accompanied by Pastor Patricia Havis of St. Luke's of Champaign and by Vivian Biggers Tuell. Everyone is invited to attend the meeting on Tuesday, May 29, at 6:30-7:30 in the Lewis Auditorium at the Urbana Free Library.
