Get out that orange shirt !

Everytown reminds us to observe National Gun Violence Awareness Day and Wear Orange Weekend 2-4 June 2023 !

"Every year on the first Friday in June, members of our movement come together to honor survivors of gun violence and demand a future free from this crisis. We wear orange throughout the weekend to show our support—in every state and every community across the country."

ERPO Update

At the 10 May 2023 meeting of the LWVCO Task Force on Gun Violence Prevention, Rita Schweitz of Colorado Ceasefire updated us on the new Extreme Risk Protection Order law. Ceasefire has received a mini-grant from the Office of Gun Violence Prevention, and they are using the funds to make available speakers on the new ERPO law. If you know of a group that would benefit from information about the law, contact Colorado Ceasefire to request a speaker.
