Beacon, NY Day of Action

As the longtime home of folk legend Pete Seeger, Beacon cherishes the late musician’s legacy of peaceful activism and civic engagement. So in the wake of the tragic shootings in Parkland, Florida, citizens are banding together to support the City of Beacon’s resolution declaring April 20, 2018 A Day

of Action Against Gun Violence.

April 20 is the 19th anniversary of the Columbine High School massacre, yet our nation’s government continues to fail its citizens, but especially its most vulnerable: our children. Students across the nation have chosen this day to rally together to demand stricter gun legislation, including but not limited to bans on assault weapons, tougher background checks, increased waiting periods, and an end to conceal carry nationwide.

In support of the National School Walkout and the City of Beacon’s resolution, we encourage students and citizens of all ages to walk out, hang out, and speak out against gun violence.

This coming April 20th, we invite students and anyone who would like to join together in Beacon’s Memorial Park for a day of activism, including:

• A Student Soapbox
• Voter Registration
• Sign-making
• Letter writing to contact elected officials
• Free brown-bag lunches for students
• Rally
• And more to be announced

The event will culminate in a march from Memorial Park to Beacon’s Main Street.

If anyone is interested in volunteering or participating in some way, please send us a message.
