A demonstration will be held on Sunday, June 5 to support Lift Every Voice Oregon, a coalition of faith based communities committed to reducing gun violence, such as recently experienced in Uvalde, Texas (photo above) and Buffalo, New York. Many more could be listed.
Lift Every Voice Oregon is gathering signatures on ballot measure IP 17 which will reduce gun violence by making gun owners safer and ammunition less lethal: stricter background checks, proof of an ability to handle a gun and ammunition rounds limited to 10. A large majority of the public supports these measures, but the US Senate refuses to even hold a vote.
We are demonstrating to show our politicians that we cannot continue with acceptance of the carnage.
The demonstration will be held on Sunday, June 5 at 2pm in front of City Hall, Newport. There will be an opportunity to sign the petition and to learn more about what changes need to happen.
