Gun Safety Advocate

After her mother was killed in the 2015 Charleston church shooting, the Rev. Sharon Risher became an evangelist for a new cause: gun safety.
Working with Everytown for Gun Safety (link is external), an organization founded after the Sandy Hook shootings, she tells her story on campuses and at churches across the country.
Part of that story has been her struggle to forgive racist murderer Dylann Roof.
Roof shot Risher’s mother, Ethel Lance, two of her cousins, Susie Jackson and Tywanza Sanders, and her childhood friend Myra Thompson. They were among the nine people killed when Roof opened fire at a prayer service at Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina. [More].
