Media Advisory – National Day of Action to Stop Gun Violence in our Schools
April 20, 2018
NAME: The Badass Teachers Association
The Badass Teachers Association will be participating in the National Day of Action Against Gun Violence in Schools tomorrow
BATs will join more than 2,500 actions nationwide on the 19-year anniversary of the Columbine tragedy
Across the nation—BATs will be wearing orange and taking part in local events on April 20, joining more than 2,500 actions nationwide calling for common-sense gun reform. April 20 marks the 19th year since Columbine, and is the third national mobilization since the mass-shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla.
In the 19 years since Columbine, more than 187,000 students have been exposed to gun violence in school, and millions more have been exposed to violence in their communities—particularly in communities of color. Inspired by the courageous young people across the nation, we are coming together to demand our leaders act and to say #NoMore to gun violence.
WHAT: Wear Orange
WHEN: April 20th All Day
