The week of July 28 through August 4, 2019, our country saw four mass shootings. This does not include the shootings in Chicago on the weekend of Aug 3rd where eight were killed and 47 wounded. America continues to ignore the easy access and love affair with guns that has blood flowing in the streets. No other country in the world has these stats because no other country has a gun problem.
It is time to unite together to put pressure on Congress to stop ignoring this public health crisis and hold Congress accountable for not taking action in passing common sense gun safety laws. Join NCJW, Pastor Pfleger, Chicago families, and other gun violence prevention activists on Wednesday, September 25, 2019 at 1pm on Capitol Hill to let Congress know we cannot wait, we need #GunControlNow.
If you’re in the DC area and plan to join us in the fight for gun violence prevention, please RSVP below. We hope to see you there!
