Every mother dreams that her child will grow up safe, healthy and happy. Unfortunately, too many American mothers see their dreams for their children shattered by gun violence.
Join Athens area volunteers as we honor victims of gun violence in our first annual Mother’s Dream Candlelight Vigil. Led by a gospel choir we will carry candles and walk from the First AME church to the steps of Athens-Clarke County City Hall. Program will include gospel music and our featured speaker Lucy McBath, Moms Demand Action National Spokesperson. We will hear from local citizens whose family members have been victims of gun violence. The traveling Mother’s Dream Quilt will be on display.
