Christine Caria is a Survivor of the Route 91 Las Vegas shooting. Shortly after the tragedy occurred, Christine recognized the complete lack of resources to address the needs of so many victims all at once. She helped to organize a group called Activists for Change. Almost immediately after the formation of Activists for Change, Christine relentlessly pursued financial support from Lisa Fine and her team at Route91Strong to help survivors of the Las Vegas shooting. This “Survivor helping Survivor” union began between Activists for Change and Route91Strong.org as their missions to help survivors and their families directly, was not only divinely inspired, but one in the same. Christine is overjoyed to be part of this team!
Christine is now the President of the Las Vegas Chapter of Brady Campaign to End Gun Violence. In December 2017, Christine traveled to Washington, DC with two other survivors to testify on the Senate floor for the elimination of bump stocks.
