Army of Moms set up shop near block grandmother and pregnant mom was killed
It may have been a chilly and gray Sunday, but that didn’t stop a group of moms from bringing their BBQ grill and message of hope to a corner in Chicago’s Back of the Yards neighborhood near the location of a drive by shooting a week ago. The shooting in the south side neighborhood claimed the lives of a grandmother and her pregnant daughter. The grandson — who turned one over the weekend — and two men were also wounded. The moms are known as Mothers Against Senseless Killings, or MASK. They’re mainstays on a block in Englewood, where they try to reduce and deter shootings in the neighborhood. They were asked to come and do the same thing near the scene of the fatal Back of the Yards shooting. M.A.S.K. founder Tamar Manasseh joins us with more on their efforts.
