The city’s Czar of Gun Violence Prevention Andre “A.T.” Mitchell is joining leaders across the nation for the National Day of Remembrance for Gun Related Homicide Victims on Dec. 30 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn starting at 3 p.m.

Mitchell and others are calling Mayor Eric Adams and elected officials across the country to initiate proclamations declaring Dec. 30 as the National Day of Remembrance for Gun Related Homicide. Several other cities are participating in the event including Newark, N.J., Mt. Vernon, N.Y., Philadelphia, Chicago and Atlanta.

Each city is holding a ceremony in remembrance of fallen victims of gun violence alongside their families, friends and communities. Names of the victims will be read aloud and balloons will be let go to commemorate the lives lost in 2022. A dove will then be released signifying the hope of peace in the new year.

  1. Hello and Happy New Year
    I tried to make a donation today Dec 31/22 but my preferred method is using PayPal and that was not available. If possible could you make that an option for payment in the future? Thank you.
