The Massachusetts Coalition to Prevent Gun Violence will present its 3rd Annual Peace MVP Award on Thursday, November 2 at 7pm to Attorney General Maura Healey at Temple Beth Elohim in Wellesley. AG Healey will be recognized for her courageous work in keeping assault weapons off Massachusetts streets.
Previous recipients of the award are former Wellesley Police Chief Terrence M. Cunningham in 2016 for his work with the Massachusetts Chiefs of Police and the State Legislature to add suitability as a criteria to obtain a Massachusetts Firearms Identification (FID) card; and House Speaker Robert DeLeo in 2015 for his leadership in passing comprehensive gun reform.
The evening will also feature veteran journalist and humanitarian Rev. Liz Walker speaking about the Cory Johnson Center for Post-Traumatic Healing, which she founded.
