About the Event

Victim families came together for the first time Wednesday afternoon, March 10, 2021. Twenty-five wounded souls attended a press conference supporting a suite of bills introduced in the Texas Legislature earlier on Monday, March 8.  For the first time, the world saw faces not seen before and connected to the victims' names. Painful stories told. Warm memories of moms shared. Sean Cullen, grandson of Leah Corken, read the long list of names of victims. As he concluded, the family members filed in, filling the back wall. The families present represented less than half of the victims. The sadness turned to determination to improve senior security. A resolve that change is needed now, ensuring other families do not have this tragic experience. Never again will somebody say, "If we had only known about the dangers lurking the halls of the homes of our loved ones."

The faces you see in the pictures and the video share a unique story. We are members of a club that should never have been started. We are determined to improve security, to get accountability and transparency, so no new families become members
