Six mothers in Lexington share a very personal and tragic connection.
Each of them lost a child to gun violence.
The group called, "sisters and supporters working against violence" or SWAG, is working to stop the vicious cycle.
Friday night, they are hosting an anti-gun violence sleepover lock-in, for the youth at First Baptist Church in Lexington.
Teenagers will hear from the police department, doctors, a gang unit, coroner, and a panel of ex-convicts.
One of the organizers, Latosha Reynolds, said if they can change at least one person's mind about guns and violence, it will be worth it.
"Change somebody's attitude. Maybe there's a child in there that will wake up and say I don't want to do this anymore. I'm going go put my gun down - I want to change my life," said Reynolds.
Starts at 9 p.m.
It's open to the public, and it's free.
Parents pick up children at 7:30 a.m. Saturday.
