For yesterday's Peace March I was wearing a orange durag with the names of victims of gun-violence to show no matter where we go we will carry their names with us. ✊🏽✊🏽

One year ago, I was in Chicago for the annual Peace March. I have to tell you, the energy was contagious. Tonight, Chicago will rally for peace, and young people will remind us once again that we have an obligation to stop everyday shootings.

Getting help is brave—opening up about your recovery to help others is even braver. Thanks for everything you do and to teach us all how to help each other, and sometimes ourselves. Mark and I are rooting for you.

3 years ago, 49 beautiful lives were stolen at Pulse in Orlando. They were dancing, they were celebrating Pride, and they never made it home. It was then the deadliest shooting in US history—it isn't anymore. We must always fight for a future where hate and violence can't win.

Two sons lost to gun violence in two years. My heart breaks for Rob, for Malcolm, and for their mother Miriam. I today because we owe it to them to be agents of change, and fight for the day when no other family has to endure this pain.
