Teens Lead anti-violence effort
Thu, Jun. 13, 2013
A courageous group of high school students from New Orleans founded this website after the Newtown, CT shootings: www.teensagainstgunviolence.org
We want to help them reach 1,000 signatures supporting their platform, succinctly outlined on the website.
Please sign the petition, and forward to all the teenagers you know. Their futures and their safety are at stake.
And as a reminder, please join us this evening as we remember one young life lost to gun violence in New Orleans this past weekend. Clardie Lee Ellis's family will hold a prayer vigil in his honor at the corner of Willow and Leonidas streets this evening at 7pm.
