Philadelphia Commissioner Ramsey: We have a Sandy Hook happening all the time

Philadelphia Police Commissioner Charles H. Ramsey addresses the Commencement of Peace gala held to celebrate the Mothers in Charge 10th anniversary of violence prevention, education and community advocacy Tuesday night.

Mothers in Charge is made up of families berevaed by violence, and Ramsey suggested stiving for a goal where they would find no new members.

Ramsey challenged educators, entertainers, elected officials, parents, prison and police officials and the community to come together with a collective voice to demand a plan to end violence.

The Gun Crisis Reporting Project partnered with Mothers in Charge to cover the gala as well as this week’s Cost of Violence National Conference, and will present more reports in the coming weeks.
