This Friday, 6/1, is Gun Violence Awareness Day. National PTA is a partner in Everytown for Gun Safety’s Wear Orange Weekend, a weekend where people all over the country will show their support for gun violence prevention both online and at community events. Here’s their link: https://wearorange.org/about/
Take a picture of yourself in your orange and post on social media using the hashtags #PTAProud #Enough and #EndGunViolence. Wouldn’t it be cool to see your councils and locals getting involved as well?
I’ve been trying to find some different resources for you. I have compiled some in this email.
For those of you that have held your conventions – here’s a debrief exercise to use if you haven’t done so already
Amanda Palmer – the Art of Asking:
Check out these TED Talks:
Priya Vulchi and Winona Guo (just graduated high school) https://www.ted.com/talks/priya_vulchi_and_winona_guo_what_it_takes_to_be_racially_literate
Book – The Art of Gathering by Priya Parker (haven’t read it yet) Sounds like a good book
If you have any resources that you’d like to share, please let me know. I will get it out to the group.
Thank you for all that you do for children, families and educators in your state and nationally.
