Community Voices on Gun Violence……A Story about Marty……

Forward Radio has been working in collaboration with the Sower’s of Justice Network to gather our community voices and stories as they related to lived experiences of gun violence. This story is the heart-felt telling of the lasting effects suicide has on the ones that are left behind.

This project is seeking to provide counter narrative to the messaging  and media being presented in the lead up the the National Rifle Association’s (NRA) national convention being held in Louisville, May 19th-22nd…….for a list of community counter events, you can access the Sower’s schedule here…..

If you have your own story you would like to share with this project, you can email us at
