Innoh Ngbodi, an RN at Vassar Brothers Medical Center, joined the march. “This is my community,” he said. “As nurses, we see these incidents firsthand when the victims of gun violence come to the hospital. This violence effects the community. It effects the people we serve. The hospital gets overwhelmed with this kind of violence on a daily basis.”
This was the second year that the Poughkeepsie community came together in a show of solidarity to take back the streets from gun violence.
