#IamCharleston: Victims and Families Demand a Vote

On July 8, 2015, a group of families from Charleston came to Washington, DC, to join the Brady Campaign to visit Capitol Hill and call on our legislators to vote to expand Brady background checks. Among them were Andre Duncan, nephew of Myra Thompson, one of the victims of the mass shooting at Emanuel AME Church and Louise Brown, 80, a longtime member of the church who marched with Coretta Scott King and was close to all nine Charleston victims.

Their message was simple: We are Charleston and we demand a vote to expand life-saving Brady background checks ASAP.
