Gun Violence Awareness Day – 6/1/18

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
