We can end gun violence by using our voices and demanding change.
June 1st is National Gun Violence Awareness Day and every year, Everytown and their partner organizations across the country host Wear Orange Weekend both to honor those who have lost their lives and loved ones and to demand a future free from gun violence.
And this year, we can't afford to sit back and not bring attention to everything that Everytown, Mom's Demand Action, and their partner organizations are doing to end gun violence.
So mark your calendars because, on June 2nd, we're running to save lives.
Whether you run virtually or host or join a meetup in your community, we have to get out, be seen, and join the millions of voices demanding change because enough is enough. (For more information on how to host a meetup in your area, CLICK HERE.)
Everytown is a movement of Americans working together to end gun violence and build safer communities. This Gun Violence Awareness Day, we run for them.
Every single donation (be it your time, voice, or money) makes a difference.
Not only are we running for Everytown, but we're raising money so they can continue to make our country a safer, more sensible ones.
Too many lives have been lost to gun violence. Enough is enough.
