Gun violence prevention groups from the Chicago area will be holding a vigil in Palatine Friday to commemorate the six-month anniversary of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings. The event takes place at 7 p.m. at the Palatine Metra Station, 137 W. Wood St.
Attendees will read the names and honor the memories of those killed in the Dec. 14, 2012 shooting at the Connecticut school and they also will acknowledge the approximately 4,800 additional Americans murdered since.
The vigil is being held by Newtown Action Alliance in partnership with People for a Safer Society, Citizens for Safer Communities, Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, Women's Resource Center, Northwest Suburbs Organizing for Action (NWSOFA), Lake/McHenry Organizing for Action (LMOFA), Palatine Township Democrats, Northwest Suburban Women Democrats, and Common Sense Reform, among others.
