Monday, January 21st: One Million Moms For Gun Control Rally

One Million Moms For Gun Control Rally
Cadman Plaza Park, Brooklyn
9:15am
Free

One Million Moms For Gun Control’s NYC-area chapters are holding a rally on Martin Luther King Jr./Inauguration Day, Jan. 21st.

Inspired by Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s message of nonviolence and vision of a better future for our children, we ask you to join us as we show our local, state and federal leaders that we are demanding immediate, meaningful action on common-sense gun control legislation.

Tony-nominated actress Montego Glover will be performing at City Hall, singing Tony-winning composer Jason Robert Brown’s song “26 Names,” a tribute to the victims of Sandy Hook. Grammy-nominated children’s musician Elizabeth Mitchell will also perform at the rally.

Speakers include: Rabbi Joshua Davidson of Temple Beth El of Northern Westchester; New York City Councilmember Letitia James; Jackie Rowe-Adams, founder of Harlem Mothers SAVE (Stop Another Violent End); and Shannon Watts, founder of One Million Moms For Gun Control.

This is a family-friendly event, and we encourage all supporters of gun control to attend – not just moms!

We will be giving out some signs, but feel free to bring your own! Be creative, but also respectful.

9:15 am: Meet in Cadman Plaza Park in Brooklyn – entrance at corner of Middagh Street and Cadman Plaza West (A, C to High Street; 2, 3 to Clark Street)
