[Recap] #NoGunsAllowed: Disarming Violence in our Communities
We kicked off the #NoGunsAllowed campaign during BET Awards weekend in LA with a roundtable discussion on decreasing gun violence. The League of Young Voters was joined by Snoop Dogg, T.I., Congresswoman Maxine Waters, Fruitvale Station director Ryan Coogler, Melvyn Hayward (HELPER Foundation), and Brandon Jones (Casey Family Programs). Watch the full livestream here.
Today, 25 percent of American teens have witnessed a shooting -- but the media isn't talking about it. It's time for us to stand together and share the true stories that are happening every day in our neighborhoods. Tell your story with photos, videos, or written word here.
We have the power to change the conversation if we start speaking up today.
