Hosted by Survivors Lead
From the host:
Join Survivors of gun violence, sexual violence and intimate partner violence wearing ALL BLACK opening day of the legislative session. We will gather in the rotunda and protest in various locations throughout the day in support of Eric’s Law and our Survivor Assistance Bill. Bring a photo of your murdered loved one or make your own sign.
9-noon: Demonstrate in Rotunda, stop in anytime
Noon: Bring a bite to eat or just join us in the Justice’s Dining Room
2pm: Press Conference in Room B971
✔️Eric’s Law: Eric’s law would make any unintentional gun death of a minor child a felony. It’s currently a misdemeanor charge for the adult who allowed child access if the child is 14+. No more arbitrary lines, we want safe storage and accountability NOW!
✔️Survivor Assistance bill: Our Survivor Assistance bill would tax handgun ammunition and lead ammunition to benefit organizations providing direct services to gun violence survivors with the added incentive of reducing lead exposure to hunters, wildlife, children, and the environment.
