After losing several loved ones to violence, I decided to devote my life to the cause of empowerment and non-violence. Although, this work is personally rewarding, often times, I sacrifice my needs for the sake of others. Every day I work extremely hard to enhance communities, inspire hope, and promote safe, healthy environments for youths and families who live in urban communities. For this reason, I am greatly humbled that my efforts have been recognized and I am extremely honored to be considered for such an award and opportunity.

In Washington, it may seem like Congress has moved beyond gun control. After Democrats’ highly touted background check bill was defeated in a Senate procedural vote last month, lawmakers immediately turned their attention to other matters, like immigration legislation, the budget and — in light of the Boston terror attack — security.
But President Obama and his allies do not plan to let up, with Vice President Biden reportedly preparing to launch a new push for gun legislation and Obama’s campaign arm trying to enlist the public to support the cause.
As opponents of stricter gun laws rallied Friday in Texas for the National Rifle Association’s annual convention, Obama himself used a speech during his visit to Mexico to once again sound the call for new regulations.
