National Vigil for All Victims of Gun Violence to
By December 2014, the 2nd anniversary of the Newtown shootings, more than 60,000 Americans nationwide will have died from gunshot wounds. As Americans we are all affected by gun violence. That is why we must keep the focus on the shame and tragedy of gun violence in our nation and why we must ask our leaders to take action.
To that end, the Newtown Foundation in partnership with the Washington National Cathedral, States United to Prevent Gun Violence and Faiths United to Prevent Gun Violence will host a National Vigil to #EndGunViolence. We will meet in loving remembrance of victims and in determination to save lives moving forward. This important National Cathedral event will kick off a weekend of over 100 local vigils and related activities nationwide. Please join families of victims of gun violence and special guests in honoring all Americans affected by gun violence to help make America safer for our children and our families.
