Mayor Michael Bloomberg will meet Thursday morning with the parents of Hadiya Pendleton, a Chicago teenager killed just days after she performed at President Obama’s inauguration in Washington, D.C.
Bloomberg will speak with her parents, Cleopatra Cowley-Pendleton and Nathaniel Pendleton, this morning at City Hall.
Pendleton, 15, was shot and killed in January in a park near her school.
Her parents recently filmed a television commercial for the mayor’s efforts against illegal firearms.
Bloomberg has been pushing for stronger gun laws for New York and the nation alongside his Mayors Against Illegal Guns group.
