June 21, 2015 all-day


What is ASK? The ASK Campaign promotes a simple idea to help keep kids safe. It encourages parents to ask if there are unlocked guns in the homes where their children play.

What is ASK Day? ASK Day is celebrated annually on the first day of summer, marking a season when kids typically spend more time at the homes of friends and other family members. This year ASK Day falls on Sunday, June 21st.
