It was an honor to participate in this rally in Wilmington on Jan 21, 2017, representing Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America. There were numerous very moving speeches, poems and music presented today. The response of the city of Wilmington was inspiring to all who attended. The main themes were equality for all citizens, what happens to the earth matters to us all, quality education is essential for all children and violence is not the answer to any of the problems we face today. A strong message was sent by several of the speakers to get involved and do what you can to influence legislators to pass common sense laws for all of these topics including gun violence prevention.
Let Your Voice Be Heard!!
This rally was initiated, not unlike Shannon Watts beginning of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, by Deb Norton who felt something should happen in Wilmington to support the Women’s March on Washington. She may a Facebook page and ended up with some 14 speakers and well over 1000 participants in front of city hall. You rock Deb!
