Design firm to help create memorial to gun violence victims

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) - A partnership of Connecticut mothers is teaming with a design firm to create a memorial to honor victims of gun violence.

The firm Svigals Partners has been working with the New Haven group pro bono since April 2018 to help plan The Lost Generation Memorial Garden. The New Haven Register reports efforts to build a memorial began with New Haven school teacher Marlene Miller Pratt, whose 18-year-old son was killed in 1988.

Firm official Julia McFadden says Pratt and other involved mothers hope the garden may serve as a place to honor and remember their loved ones.

A $300,000 state grant was approved to help with the creation of the garden during a meeting of the Connecticut State Bond Commission last year.
