I am working with an grassroots group called the Newtown Action Alliance to make sure that the Sandy Hook tragedy results in changes that make our communities safer. As a part of this strategy, the NAA organizes trips to Washington DC every three months to meet with lawmakers and the media to keep the issue of gun violence in the forefront.
We would like to go with the NAA to DC on September 17th-18th for the 9 month anniversary of the shooting, and we would like to bring gun violence victims, survivors and family members from other part of the country, with us.
It will cost approx. $10,000 to send us and our colleagues from other communities to DC for this trip so that our voices can be heard, and so we make sure that they do not forget.
I have pledged to raise money to help pay our way and I am asking for your support. Even a small donation of $12.14 would be a helpful symbolic gesture. $26.00 would be even more symbolic and helpful. Really, any amount you can offer would be terrific and very much appreciated.
Thank you in advance for your support of this important cause.
