NORTH CALDWELL, NJ - A signed proclamation declaring June 2 of each year as Gun Violence Awareness Day in North Caldwell was presented by mayor Joseph Alessi at Tuesday’s meeting of the borough council.

Alessi, who said all the council members joined him in supporting the efforts of Moms Demand Action in endorsing “common sense solutions to prevent gun violence in our nation,” presented a copy of the proclamation to Emily Goldberg, a borough resident and volunteer for the national anti-gun violence group, and to Christine McGrath of Verona, the co-chair of the Essex County chapter of the organization.

The mayor thanked Goldberg for “better educating” him and the council members on the terrible toll of gun violence—for example, 25 times more people in the United States are killed by guns than in any other country in the world.

He also said the issue was made more personal to him when two close family friends recently died from gun violence.

June 2 was chosen as National Gun Violence Awareness Day in 2017 because it would have been the birthday of Hadiya Pendleton of Chicago, who sang at President Obama’s inauguration but died from gun violence in her hometown nine days after her performance.
