The sister of slain Evanston teen Justin Murray will attend an anti-youth violence luncheon Wednesday with first lady Michelle Obama and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel.

Ashton Loryn Murray, 16, has also been invited to a private reception with the first lady before the official event, said Carolyn Murray, her mother. The sophomore at Evanston Township High School will represent her 19-year-old brother, who was shot dead in December on Evanston’s west side.

In January, Ashton traveled with her mother to Washington, D.C., for President Barack Obama’s State of the Union Address, where she initially met the first lady.

The luncheon, which will be held Monday morning at a Chicago hotel, will focus on “community-based programs that serve at-risk youth,” according to Emanuel’s office.
