Two mothers who lost their children in the Sandy Hook tragedy are on a mission to help others.
That is part of the message of their non-profit, called “Safe and Sound Schools.” It focuses on school safety, supporting crisis, and response and recovery.
The women will bring the discussion to the very first National Summit on School Safety in Houston.
“Really this summit is our way of honoring our kids,” said Parker.
“We’ve got a mental health professionals, we got law-enforcement folks, fire folks, safety and security professionals,” said Gay. “There are quite a few survivors here that will share that message and share what they have learned along the way.”
The summit comes as Texas approaches the one-year anniversary of the Santa Fe High School shooting in May.
Eight students and two substitute teachers were killed in the tragedy.
