SOUTH BEND, Ind.—Roughly 40 people attended the Moms Demand Action For Gun Sense in America meeting Saturday morning.
The meeting’s theme was, “Moments That Survive,” which focused on stories from local survivors of gun violence and the impact it has on the community.
Attendees also learned how they can take direct action in order to prevent gun violence in the future.
“I want my kids to grow up in a world where it's safe, where, as much as we can, we can't protect them from everything but we can take reasonable, common sense precautions and pass laws that will keep our communities safe, and that's why, you know, you don't have very much time as a mom, but this is one of the causes I've chosen to invest a lot of energy in,” said Liz Anderson, Member of MDA South Bend Chapter Leader Team.
This month’s meeting was held at the Olivet AME Church in South Bend, and will be held again in late March. For more details visit here.
