Observing National Gun Violence Survivors Week

If you were not aware, I am a survivor of gun violence. In 1980, I lost my 25 year old mother Sharon Neal to an act of domestic violence that involved a gun and in 2016, my 18 year old nephew Kevin Neal, Jr was killed in a senseless act of gun violence. This week is National Survivors of Gun Violence week an as a Senior Fellow with the Everytown for Gun Safety Survivor Network, I share my story of how my family has been impacted by gun violence with the hopes of helping others and effecting change so that no more lives will be lost to acts of gun violence. Read my latest Op-Ed piece that helps to empower others to share their stories to prevent and eventually end gun violence in our country.
