Dear IH Friends,
Here is a message from our colleagues at APHA and the MCH Gun Violence Prevention Workgroup:
Now is the time to stand up for gun violence prevention (GVP) in our Nation. Many of you have asked what you can do to promote the public health approach to gun violence prevention. Below are actions to take in the coming week:
1. Please plan on attending one of over 817 March for Our Lives events worldwide on Saturday, March 24th. Click on this link to register for the March: March for Our Lives (https://event.marchforourlives.com/event/march-our-lives-events)
Possible Signage for the March for our Lives:
-Gun violence is a public health crisis.
-We need more funding for gun violence prevention research
-Gun violence is a public health issue
2. Visit the APHA website Gun Violence Page: Gun Violence. (https://www.apha.org/topics-and-issues/gun-violence)
3. Share AJPH Gun Violence Research. (http://ajph.aphapublications.org/topic/gunviolence)
4. Get active in your communities. Engage at the grassroots level. Join your local GVP organizations and promote a public health approach to end the gun violence epidemic.
