BP Vanessa L. Gibson, DA Darcel Clark, and Council Member Rafael Salamanca, to Demand Action to Curb Gun Violence;


Call to Action Follows the Shooting Death of 11-Year Old Kyhara Tay in the South Bronx

Bronx Borough President Vanessa L. Gibson, Bronx Country District Attorney Darcel Clark, Council Member Rafael Salamanca, and community advocates will host a rally to denouncing the gun violence that is plaguing our streets. 

While walking to a nail salon with a family member in broad daylight, 11-year old Kyhara Tay was tragically shot and killed, the victim of senseless violence caused by individuals who callously released gunfire on a crowded street.

Incensed by the constant stream of incidents ripping our communities apart, Council Member Salamanca, Borough President Gibson and other speakers will make their voices heard by saying enough is enough! Without meaningful action to fix a broken system, our community will continue to grieve the loss of our friends, family and loved ones.
