Nelson informed us of the event on 5/10 - FUERZA 1680 Lexington Avenue 5:00-8:00pm
We asked members to share about the Slipper Room fundraising event on 6/7
Benjamin volunteered to coordinate D.C. Pride for GaG
Here are the people who agreed to be the “point person” for each event:
Queens - Terry
Harlem - Carl
Brooklyn - Natalie & Shep
Folsom - Trevor / Ben / Nick
Staten Island - Natalie
Hudson NY - Dan B
Asbury Park - Patrick
They will ALL need to bring the following : a table, palm cards, gag swag, FAQ sheets, signage & hymnals - and invitations to 6/25 Pride, if before then
Action ideas from the floor:
Actions in the Boroughs : let's go to where gun violence happens the most in NYC and make “ghost memorials”. Also, start an interactive map like Save our Streets has.
Revisit the “NRA Alliance” actions (Hertz / FedEx / Wyndham)
Travel outside our “comfort zone” : visit a gun show / visit a mall in “gun country” (King of Prussia Mall, for example)
Craft an action that showcases gun violence as a Public Health Crisis. Also, show the aftermath of gun violence - physical problems and emotional scars for the victims and also all the other people involved (police and EMT, for example)
Tour of famous American gun violence Sites - get in a RV and spend a week or more traveling across America visiting sites
Explore discrimination at the Licensing Division at 1 Police Plaza.
