If you care about gun violence, meet me Thursday at the Art Museum steps

She still doesn’t set foot in the Chinese restaurant on the corner of W. Norris Street and Germantown Avenue, where her son collapsed. She will go to Cousin’s, across the street, but mostly because it’s the closest supermarket to her house a couple of blocks away.

On June 10, 2011 her 17-year-old son, Justin Reyes, and a friend were shot outside a North Philadelphia bodega on the corner of 6th and W. Norris streets.
