Gun Violence is National Epidemic.
Last night the MA Coalition to Prevent Gun Violence honored Cindy Diggs at the Annual Peace MVP Award. Cindy is a champion for Boston neighborhoods that are at most risk for gun violence. We congratulate Cindy for her work!
In 2016, we hosted the first Concert Across America to End Gun Violence to mobilize with music to end gun violence! Since then there have been over 500 concerts in 43 states. In its 6th year, we are excited to have a great set of musicians join us for a virtual event on Facebook.
