#EndGunViolence Vigil – December 15th, 4-6 pm Environmental Center Bend
Moms Demand Action is joining the Newtown Foundation in organizing vigils nationwide to commemorate the 7th anniversary of the Sandy Hook tragedy that took place in December 2012. Since then, mass shooting incidents have skyrocketed and over 700,000 Americans have been killed or injured by gun violence.
Our local group, Moms Demand Action in Central Oregon, is joining this nationwide effort and hosting a vigil on Sunday, December 15th from 4-6 pm at the Environmental Center, 16 NW Kansas Ave, in Bend. Together, we will honor ALL victims and survivors of gun violence, shine a light on the epidemic of devastating gun violence in our nation and call for common sense measures to reduce gun deaths and injuries. The event will feature music, speakers, survivor testimony, and a brief candlelight march downtown.
