2020 Was a Record Year for Gun Violence

Description (Dublin Core)

“There are many communities across this country that are dealing with ever-present gun violence that is just part of their daily experience. It doesn’t get the support, the spotlight, the national attention. People don’t understand that it’s continuous and it’s on the rise.” – Mark Barden, our co-founder and father of Daniel

“If we think about how many people are dying every single day, and we think about how would that be in our family or our community, perhaps that would motivate us to take ongoing action rather than spikes of action when something happens. Even if it’s not happening in your community, it’s happening in the community of America.” – Nicole Hockley, our co-founder and mother of Dylan
