Gun Violence Prevention Actions
Gun Violence Prevention Update:
- The WA Alliance for Gun Responsibility (AGR) has launched a new Initiative for the ballot this November, “Yes on I-1639 – Safe Schools, Safe Communities: Reduce Assault Weapon Violence.” The measure is intended to reduce dangerous access and requires safe storage. Signature gathering commences in mid-May and will continue through July 7. UUC’s Gun Violence Prevention group may have petitions and information sheets available at church on Sunday, May 27. Find out more about this proposed ballot measure here: https://gunresponsibility.org/news/ballot-initiative-assault-weapon/
- The Alliance for Gun Responsibility’s annual fundraising luncheon is Monday, May 21 at noon at the downtown Westin Hotel. UUC will have a table (make it 2 or 3!) hosted by table captain Brian Duncan. No ticket cost, but donations will be solicited at the event. Please RSVP on-line at: https://secure.gunresponsibility.org/page/s/join-us-for-our-6th-annual-luncheon- (enter Brian Duncan as existing table captain), and send a separate email to: firstname.lastname@example.org, so he can get a headcount to AGR by 4 pm on May 17 to determine how many tables UUC will need. Thanks for supporting a safer Washington!
