JOIN US: 30th Annual Virginia Advocacy Day to Prevent Gun Violence
Please join the Educational Fund to Stop Gun Violence and our community partners virtually on Monday, January 17. On Martin Luther King Jr. Day, we honor the memory and teachings of a great civil rights leader who was killed by gunfire as he spoke out for justice. We will honor the lives of all Virginians killed or injured by gun violence by taking action to reduce this epidemic in the Commonwealth. We will raise our voices for responsible gun laws and advocate for funding for programs in communities most impacted by gun violence. Together, we can work to end Virginia’s gun violence epidemic.
This event is made possible in part by a generous gift from the Bon Secours Health System.
Date: Monday, January 17, 2022
Time: 12 p.m. to 1:30 p.m.
Hosted by The Educational Fund to Stop Gun Violence
Location: Zoom — log-in details will be shared upon registration
