Florida is no stranger to gun violence. In the past three years, it's been the site of horrific mass shootings at Parkland and Pulse Nightclub, but also thousands of other deaths from firearms. While the mass shootings dominate the headlines, the gun violence happening every day in the state doesn't often make the news, especially for families in south Miami-Dade county. . . . In Homestead, Goulds, Cutler Bay, and other southern towns, communities aren't given the same police resources, crime prevention programs, or media attention when it comes to gun violence. Shootings are often unsolved, leaving the victims' families looking for answers for years. This lack of support was why Romania Dukes decided to found Mothers Fighting for Justice, a support group for mothers in south Miami-Dade who have lost a child to gun violence. Over time, the group has grown to include family members of all kinds, but their goal remains the same: being a resource for families when a child is taken too soon by gun violence. . . . This 360° video takes the viewer into one of their regular support group meetings to see how they're still shadowed by gun violence, but won't let that stop them from fighting it. Watch now.
