CANCELLED: Moments That Survive: Remembering Those Impacted by Gun Violence Wednesday, February 13, 2019 at 6:30pm
CANCELLED: As the first anniversary of the shooting in Parkland FL approaches and in support of survivors of gun violence close to home and around the country, the Genesee County Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America group will be hosting a vigil at Batavia First Presbyterian Church, 300 E. Main St., on Wednesday, February 13th at 6:30pm. The purpose of this event is to offer compassionate support to survivors of gun violence in our community. It will include a curious inquiry into the question: Who is a survivor? A Survivor Speaker will share her personal story of how a family tragedy impacted her life and the lives of so many others. Guest survivors will be blessed and fortified by the Spirit of Love that unites us all. This event to open to all. Even if you have not been personally impacted by gun violence, your presence will provide a visible expression of the support and compassion of the larger community. Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America is a grassroots movement of Americans fighting for public safety measures that can protect people from gun violence.
