Christopher misses his brother every day. He died in a shooting. Now Christopher has turned his pain into action and campaigns against gun violence in America.

Christopher’s Story

Christopher is 9 years old and he lives in Queens in New York City.  His brother was 15 when he was killed walking home from the store.    Christopher is now one of America’s youngest gun control campaigners.

March against Gun Violence

As part of a national campaign Christopher and hundreds of supporters marched across Brooklyn Bridge in New York demanding more protection from gun violence.  He addressed the crowds who had gathered to protest there with him and his family.

Christopher talked about his brother’s life and called on America to help prevent further killings by taking action together:

“We can all change the future”, he said to the crowds, “and it starts right here, right now”

WHY CAN'T THE UK HELP SOLVE THIS?
I agree @sarawalter and @sisterocks, we are being way too lazy about this! Go Christopher! I really, really, really hope that Donald Trump suddenly realizes that more guns will not stop the USA's gun problem in a million trillion years. NO TO GUNS!!!!!!!!!!!
