RICAGV Board Secretary Diana Garlington spoke for the Coalition at the Nonviolence Institute’s press conference on the racially-motivated gun massacre of ten Black Americans; three others were wounded.

Diana read part of our press release on this horrific event, and then spoke of her personal experience as a survivor of gun violence and the need to take action. This call to action was the theme of the press conference and included the rampant spreading of hateful and racist ideology and the intersection of easy access to guns.
