Penn Students Stand Against Gun Violence

February 22, 2018, 12:00pm - February 22, 2018, 11:30am

Join us this Thursday at 12pm to take a stand against gun violence. We will make our presence known on Locust Walk, holding signs for every one of the 371 mass shootings that have occured between January 1st, 2017 and today. All we ask of you is that you meet us at the LOVE Statue to get a sign. We will hold these signs and spread each direction down Locust to demonstrate the scale of the toll guns take on our communities. We will stand in silence for 497 seconds (8 minutes and 17 seconds) to honor those who have been killed during this period. We want to create a clear image of campus solidarity and commitment, as we stand in silence and remember the victims of these shootings. We will have more information at the event on how to get further involved in fighting for common sense solutions to reduce gun violence. Please arrive at the LOVE Statue before 12pm. We will begin assembling promptly at 12pm and will begin our moment of silence at 12:15. We will give further instructions at the event. If you or your organization are interested in getting more involved in the planning of this action, please contact Jana on Facebook or at koja@sas.upenn.edu.
