Courage to Pass Background Check Legislation Rally

April 30 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

On April 30, 2019, UNC-Charlotte student, Riley Howell, was shot and killed while trying to save his classmates from an armed attacker.

On Friday, April 30th, at 5 pm, the Howell family and their supporters will come together at the Historic Henderson County Courthouse to honor Riley’s sacrifice while remembering all victims of gun violence.

The rally will be a remembrance of Riley Howell’s courage and the courage of gun violence survivors and their allies who have turned their heartache into action. The event will also be an appeal for Congress to summon the courage to pass Universal Background Check legislation, the first step in an effort to create safer communities across the country.

Signs will be provided and supporters are welcome to bring their own. Masks and social distancing are encouraged.
