We would like to take a moment to express our deepest gratitude and sincere thankfulness to the incredible team at MACGV. As the founder of Mothers Against Community Gun Violence (MACGV) and the mother of Nia Black, a 23-year-old victim of gun violence, your hard work, dedication, and patience have meant the world to us. Even in moments of frantic overwhelm, you stood by our side and ensured that everything came together seamlessly. Together, we pulled off another successful and impactful community event, truly exemplifying what it means to be part of the change we want to see—a safer Minnesota!

MACGV extends its wholehearted gratitude and sincere appreciation to MN Lieutenant Governor Peggy Flanagan, community pastors, state senators, and representatives. Your unwavering dedication and tireless advocacy in the crucial areas of gun violence prevention and public safety have been truly remarkable. Together, as champions of gun violence prevention, we have united to create change and foster a safer state for everyone. Shoulder to shoulder, we have bridged the gaps and provided unwavering support to families in our communities who have tragically lost loved ones and been impacted by gun violence. The impact of your unwavering commitment and tireless efforts cannot be overstated, and we are genuinely grateful for the incredible accomplishments we have achieved as a united front. By collaborating with Community Violence Intervention (CVI) organizations, gun sense legislative champions, and concerned community members, we have made a profound difference in the lives of the people of Minnesota. We express our deep appreciation for the positive transformation we have collectively brought about as a unified force
