Declare June 2 Gun Violence Awareness Day: Eddie DeLoach

On June 2, millions of Americans who believe we can do more to stop gun violence will come together to Wear Orange on National Gun Violence Awareness Day.

Will you join us by issuing a proclamation declaring June 2nd as Gun Violence Awareness Day in our city?

What started as a way for a group of teens to honor their friend killed by gun violence has turned into a national movement to recognize the 91 Americans that are killed every day from gun violence, and the hundreds more injured. President Obama, Julianne Moore, the New York Mets, MTV, Cosmopolitan, Motown Records, Sarah Silverman, Jason Bateman, Katie Couric, Questlove, Michael J. Fox, Tony Hawk, and more than 200 noteworthy individuals and organizations answered the call.

Last year was the first Gun Violence Awareness Day. This year, I'm asking for your help to make it the biggest. Please join mayors across the country in officially recognizing the day and call for a future free from gun violence.

Why is this important?

The more cities and towns that declare June 2 Gun Violence Awareness Day, the louder our call for a future free from gun violence will become.

2 East Bay Street  Savannah, GA 31402-

Thanks for your support of this petition everyone. This has been another tough week here in Savannah and this call to action is even more important now. We are at nearly 50 signatures in just three days. How exciting. Let's keep sharing this far and wide so we can double, triple or even quadruple our amount of signatures before delivering this petition to the Mayor. We just have a couple weeks to do so. Thanks for taking action. Any little action we take is the right action against this violence happening in our city. Thank you again.
