WALK FOR GUN SAFETY: Please join us in the Walk, and feel free to create a sign or banner to carry along the 6 block walk which will be viewed by 10,000 – 12,000 attendees. You may represent: educators and students, houses of worship, first responders, health care professionals, musicians, retired military, parents, survivors, gun owners, grandmothers, victims outreach organizations, toddlers, gun buy back programs, political parties, or other categories. The possibilities are endless. 96 individuals die each day from firearms, and that also seems to be endless in America.
Gun Violence is the second leading cause of death in children, aged 10-19. Let’s raise our voices and support the student led movement for sensible gun legislation. CONTACT: Concerned Citizens Against Gun Violence / CCAGV
