Today marks the 5-year anniversary of the tragic mass shooting at a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado. During that needless act of violence, twelve lives were lost, including Jessica Ghawi.

Since that time, Jessi’s mom, Sandy Phillips, has established Jessi’s Message to support and advocate for a safer America by reducing gun violence.

On Tuesday, July 25th we have a tremendous opportunity to join Jessi’s mom Sandy in a conversation about gun violence and ways we can work together to make our communities safer so none of us have to go through the nightmare that Sandy has been through.

Join MomsRising and the anti-gun violence community in Ann Arbor on Tuesday, July 25th for this important event!
