Turning Newtown Orange
Thursday, June 2, 2016 marks the 2nd Annual National Gun Violence Awareness Day. Newtown Action Alliance is partnering with Connecticut Against Gun Violence, Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, Sandy Hook Promise, Greenwich Council Against Gun Violence, and the Brady Campaign Southwestern CT Chapter to turn Newtown orange.

Over 100,000 Americans have been killed by guns and over 250,000 Americans have been injured by guns since the tragic shooting at the Sandy Hook Elementary School. Newtown is moving forward but Newtown has not moved on. We must continue to shed a light on the epidemic of gun violence in our nation to engage more Americans to make gun violence prevention a priority.

Please sign up to join nearly 150 of us on June 2nd for our "Orange Walk" and Rally in Newtown. We will meet at Fairfield Hills at 6:00 P.M to "Orange Walk" over to Edmond Town Hall for our #WearOrange rally. Please #WearOrange and feel free to bring a gun violence prevention poster/sign.

IMPORTANT: We have changed the start time of our Orange Walk and Rally from 6:30 to 6:00 P.M. so that you could join us at the free screening of Katie Couric and Stephanie Soechtig's "Under the Gun" documentary at AMC Danbury Loews at 8:00 P.M. After the screening, there will be a panel discussion with the producer, Kristen Lazure, Mark and Jackie Barden (who lost their son, Daniel on 12/14) and other members of Sandy Hook Promise. Please see the attached flyer for more information. Please register for the screening here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/danbury-ct-screening-of-under-the-gun-tickets-25358290329

*We’ve reserved a school bus to bring you back to Fairfield Hills after the Rally at Edmond Town Hall to help get you the screening on time.

T-SHIRTS: We will be selling NAA #WearOrange t-shirts for $10 at Fairfield Hills at 5:30 P.M. on June 2nd before the Orange Walk.
