Event description

Description

December 14, 2018 marks the 6-year anniversary of the Sandy Hook tragedy.

By this December, over 600,000 Americans will be killed or injured by guns since the Sandy Hook shooting tragedy. We urge you to join the gun violence prevention community in our collective effort to continue to shine a light on the devastating epidemic of gun violence in our nation until these gun deaths and injuries are reduced.

The victims, survivors and the families impacted by gun violence are often forgotten. Therefore, the Newtown Foundation, the charitable arm of the Newtown Action Alliance, in partnership with Amnesty International, the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, Center for American Progress, the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, Everytown Survivor Network, Faiths United to Prevent Gun Violence, Giffords: Courage to Fight Gun Violence, Jr Newtown Action Alliance, Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, Organizing for Action, St. Marks Episcopal Church, States United to Prevent Gun Violence, Survivors Empowered and Women's March, will host the annual national vigil service of mourning and loving remembrance for all who have fallen victim to the ongoing epidemic of gun violence in America on Wednesday, December 5, 2018 in Washington, D.C., which will anchor the Nationwide Vigils & Events to #EndGunViolence during the month of December.

Our goal is simple. The gun violence prevention movement will unite to support the families and communities impacted by gun violence, educate, continue to raise awareness, and keep this critical issue front and center throughout our nation.

Together, we will renew our vow to #HonorWithAction to #EndGunViolence in America.
