Remember September 25:
On Sunday, September 25, 2016, we will remember the victims of America’s gun violence epidemic with The Concert Across America, a series of live events from coast to coast.
Why mobilize with music?
The power of music to reach far and wide has fueled countless important movements in recent decades. Now is the time to turn up the music to turn down the hateful rhetoric that has become a hallmark of the gun debate.
Why on September 25th?
In 2007, Congress designated September 25 as the National Day of Remembrance for Murder Victims. And while two out of every three victims are killed with a firearm, the day of “remembrance” is the only thing Congress has done to acknowledge this loss.
And while we need to be respectful of what this day stands for, we must also demand that Congress mandates a background check for every gun sale, too.
