This year, the Missouri General Assembly passed House Concurrent Resolution 70, sponsored by Bruce, to “declare youth violence as a public health epidemic and support the establishment of statewide trauma-informed education;” and declare June 7th ‘Christopher Harris Day’ in Missouri to remember children in St. Louis and throughout the state of Missouri lost to violence.”
