There is much talk about the gun violence in the city of New Haven. Often lost in those discussions are those that are left behind when the violence has ended. Bereavement Care Network is designed to deal with just that group of individuals (Read about the network here).
On Saturday, a beautiful and unseasonably warm day, people from across New Haven gathered outside the Charles Street substation to join Bereavement Care in a march aimed at showing unity increasing community connection and reducing the violence we have seen.
