On Wednesday November 21st at 6:00pm, local organizations and members of the medical community will gather at Federal Plaza for a candlelight vigil and rally against gun violence after the shooting at Mercy Hospital on Monday. We will honor the lives of Doctor Tamara O’Neal, Officer Samuel Jimenez, and pharmaceutical resident Dayna Less.
We will be standing in solidarity with the doctors, nurses, and workers of Mercy Hospital as well as the Chicago Police Department. We can put an end to gun and domestic violence, it has no place in our communities, schools, places of worship or hospitals. Join us to mourn, pray, and stand in solidarity. Gun violence is a public health issue, and doctors also want to see an end to the daily bloodshed caused by firearms across the country.
