Disarm Hate Rally, Unity Walk, and Block Party
June 8 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
When a person filled with rage has easy access to a gun, hate crimes are deadly. That’s why this year for Gun Violence Awareness Weekend (June 7-9), the Montgomery County chapter of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America will “Wear Orange” to raise awareness around discrimination, hate, and gun violence.
Join Moms Demand Action in Downtown Silver Spring, as we come together with many local partner organizations, including Communities United Against Hate (CUAH) and Youth Creating Change (YCC), to recognize and give voice to neighbors disproportionately impacted by hate and gun violence, and show our love and solidarity.
This free event includes a rally, unity walk through Silver Spring, and a block party with family-friendly activities. After the event, enjoy discounts on food and drinks at one of the many fabulous Silver Spring restaurants partnering with us.
