Lisa Price, a resident of the Chapel Hill community, died on June 23, 2022. She was a co-founder of North Carolinians Against Gun Violence.

From NCGV: It was Lisa who co-founded North Carolinians Against Gun Violence in 1993, after a jogger was shot and killed in Chapel Hill. Lisa was a fierce advocate for gun violence prevention, and remained active in NCGV until her passing.

We are grateful for Lisa's leadership, mentorship, strength, courage, and friendship. She will be deeply missed by all of us at NCGV.
