June Month of Action Against Gun Violence

End Gun Violence Michigan and Moms Demand Action have organized 25 events throughout Michigan during the month of June. We're honoring the innocent victims of gun violence, celebrating the passage of Michigan's new gun laws, providing resources to the community, and demanding more change. Gun violence impacts every community differently, and each community is addressing it their own way: from marches and rallies to film screenings, art installations, and resource fairs. 

Wear Orange is Moms Demand Action's national week of action that has been expanded to a whole month of activities.

Silence the Violence was started 16 years agi by Church of the Messiah in Detroit, who have asked EGVMI to take the message statewide.
