Still reeling from the murders of her mother, brother and nephew, Jennifer Hudson says she wants to use the tragedy to speak out against crime and gun violence in the urban community.

 

       Chicago Sun-Times columnist Bill Zwecker reported Tuesday of Hudson’s plans to “use the newly formed foundation she established with her sister Julia to try to reduce the daily killings in inner-city communities across the nation.”      

       Zwecker continued: “I’m also hearing that once Hudson has had enough time to work through her grief, she hopes to go public on shows like ‘Oprah’ to turn the anti-violence campaign into a virtual crusade against gangs, guns and urban crime.      

       The Hudson-King Foundation for Families of Slain Victims aims to care for families who have lost relatives to a violent crime — including providing food, shelter, clothing and grief counseling, said Hudson’s publicist.
