Gun Reform Rally

Shootings every day in Chicago. Mass shootings at schools, places of worship, stores, clubs, concerts & on & on. Sandy Hook didn’t wake up our legislators. #EnoughIsEnough Something has to be done about guns. Full stop. #MoscowMitch needs to allow there to be discussion on sensible gun laws.

We will gather at Federal Plaza at noon on Sunday to listen to people speak on what we could be doing. Bring the sign of your choice & flowers to hold in tribute for all those lost to gun violence.

Speakers will be listed as finalized.
