CREATE A WORKING GROUP IN YOUR COMMUNITY
Our work won’t be done at the end of this tour, so we need communities across the country to form coalitions to take action at the local level. We created a guide on how to create your own action group here, but here are the basics:
- Find a safe space, like an after school club or a community center, where you can hold meetings.
- Invite a wide range of people—not just your classmates or your friends. Our voices are stronger when they’re informed by a wide range of perspectives.
- Collect the emails, social media handles or phone numbers of everyone in your action group so you can contact them about meetings, events and local actions to participate in.
- Focus club meetings on educating each other about issues around gun violence, registering people in your area to vote, and even raising money for community engagement events and reducing gun violence in your area.
