Marylanders to Prevent Gun Violence (MPGV) has launched a website called “Behind the Statistics” that shares stories about gun deaths and injuries and how families, friends, and communities have been affected by these tragedies. “No more numbers,” declares MGPV. “Say their names.” By allowing survivors to tell their deeply personal stories, MPGV hopes to help change the culture of violence in this country.
The stories cover the full spectrum of gun violence: homicides, suicides, shootings perpetrated by law enforcement, etc. At the bottom of each, there is a place for readers to leave comments of support.
Please take the following steps to show these gun violence survivors that you care about them and their advocacy:
