Mother’s Day Parade About Love and NOT Violence

It’s been a year since a mass shooting broke out in the 7th ward as people gathered to celebrate Mother’s Day for the Big 7 Social Aid and Pleasure Club’s annual parade.

At last year’s parade, 19 people were shot when gunfire unexpectedly erupted in the crowd.

WGNO”s Kenny Lopez was there at the parade, one year later, as organizers pledge that gang violence will not end a Mother’s Day tradition.
