Purple balloons in honor of Nikiesha Thomas float above the Back To School Block Party in the Robinwood Community of Annapolis, Md., Sunday, Aug. 21, 2022. Purple was Nikiesha's favorite color. The block party sponsored by the Nikiesha Thomas Memorial and Allstate Insurance and was hosted by Beacon Light Seventh-day Adventist Church. Nikiesha Thomas was shot and killed by her ex-boyfriend just days after filing for a protective order. Victims of abuse and their families saw a quiet breakthrough this summer when the passage of a bipartisan gun safety bill in Congress included a proposal that would make it more difficult for intimate partners of convicted domestic abusers to obtain firearms.
