This year marks the 5th Annual National Gun Violence Awareness Day.
Since the Sandy Hook School shooting more than 600,000 Americans have been killed or injured by guns in America. Newtown is moving forward but Newtown has not moved on. We must continue to shed light on the tragic epidemic of gun violence in our nation to engage more Americans to make gun violence prevention a priority.
Please join CT Against Gun Violence, CT Teens Against Gun Violence, Jr. Newtown Action Alliance, the CT Chapter of Moms Demand Action, Mothers United Against Violence, Newtown Action Alliance and Sandy Hook Promise for the Newtown Orange Walk & Rally on June 2 at 3:00pm.
We’ll gather at Newtown Middle School, 11 Queen St. in Newtown beginning at 2:30pm, rally will begin at 3:00pm following which we’ll walk down Queen St. to Mile Hill Road and then return to Newtown Middle School.
