City honors community activist Andrew Holmes

Mayor Rahm Emanuel has declared today, “Andrew Holmes Day”.

Holmes is a South Side native, and a community activist.

He is regularly the first on the scene following acts of gun violence.

Holmes is often the one providing information to the police and media and offering comfort to victims’ families.

Holmes started his mission to rid the streets of gun violence after he, himself, was a shooting victim more than 20 years ago.
