Join Survivors of gun violence, sexual violence and intimate partner violence in 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.
✔️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.
