By day, Khary Penebaker works in the roofing business. On nights and weekends, he meets with gun violence survivors.
Penebaker volunteers with Everytown for Gun Safety and Mom’s Demand Action, groups that advocate for laws intended to prevent gun violence.
His story starts in September of 1978; he was 17 months old. That's the year his mother committed suicide.
