Each year since the Sandy Hook shooting in December 2012, People for a Safer Society has held a memorial service for victims of gun violence.
This year, the event will take place from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Trinity Lutheran Church, 3637 Golf Road, Evanston.
Evanston has experienced six homicides by gun this year alone --please come out to remember the victims and support their families.
The program will include speakers from a variety of organizations, families of victims, and elected officials. There'll also be live music.
The NCJW - National Council of Jewish Women Chicago North Shore Section, Mothers Against Community Gun Violence - MACGV, and the Evanston/North Shore Branch NAACP are co-sponsors of the event.
If you're not able to attend, you may also join the program virtually by attending a webinar (register here) or live-streaming it from NCJW Facebook page.
NCJW is also collecting books to donate to local children and young adults who are coping with the trauma of gun violence. The books will be donated through MACGV Chicago's grief support groups.
