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:

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:

Amy Edmondson

Ingrid Fetell Lee

Priya Vulchi and Winona Guo (just graduated high school)

Tanya Menon

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.
