The Quad-City vigil will be among events being held across the country to honor those affected by gun violence and to ask lawmakers to act to end the crisis. The local vigil will be at 4:30 p.m. at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of the Quad-Cities, 3707 Eastern Ave., Davenport.

Moms Demand Action is a grassroots movement of Americans fighting for public safety measures that can protect people from gun violence.
The Sandy Hook shooting claimed the lives of 20 children and six educators. Since then, Moms Demand Action and Students Demand Action volunteers, along with survivors of gun violence and other gun violence prevention advocates, have fought hard – and successfully – to change America’s lax gun laws.
Moms Demand Action has established a chapter in every state and, along with Mayors Against Illegal Guns, Students Demand Action and the Everytown Survivor Network, it is part of Everytown for Gun Safety, the largest gun violence prevention organization in the country with nearly 6 million supporters and more than 350,000 donors.
