The Rev. Sharon Washington Risher was catapulted into the limelight after a shooting at the Mother Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina on June 17, 2015. Her beloved mother and the church’s sexton, Ethel Lee Lance, was killed along with eight others, including two cousins and a childhood friend. Since that horrific tragedy, Risher has been openly critical of
the nation’s gun laws and has become a national spokesperson for the grassroots advocacy groups Everytown for Gun Safety and Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America.
