In January, we joined the Women’s March. In April, we joined the Science March. Now it’s on us to invite everyone to join our 5TH ANNUAL MARCH ACROSS THE BROOKLYN BRIDGE TO END GUN VIOLENCE!!!
When Moms Demand Action was founded in the wake of the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, our very first event was a march across the Brooklyn Bridge. Every year since then, as our group has grown into a national organization, we’ve marched across the bridge again to show that we will not stop fighting until our families and communities are safe from the gun violence that claims 93 lives each day.
It is now more important than ever before that we stand strong and stand together. The NRA was the biggest donor in the presidential campaign and their leadership is pushing some dangerous legislation which could have detrimental impact on our city and our state.
Let’s make our fifth annual March Across the Brooklyn Bridge even BIGGER and BETTER and BRIGHTER than ever! Let’s be loud and clear. Let’s demand to be seen, to be heard, and demand action to end gun violence! Our march is one of over 200 events happening on the weekend following the National Gun Violence Awareness Day. #WearOrange will send a signal that can’t be ignored!
