Help bring GVP and LGBT activists to Washington DC on August 13th to take part in the Disarm Hate 2016 Rally

Following the tragic shooting at Pulse nightclub in Orlando that took the lives of forty nine people and injured 53 others, Jason Hayes, a celebrity hairdresser, decided that calling legislators, signing petitions, and making donations were not enough -- he had to do something different so he created a Facebook event page and asked his friends to join him to rally in Washington D.C. Within days, the Brady Campaign to End Gun Violence, Newtown Action Alliance and other organizations committed to cosponsoring the rally.

The #DisarmHate2016 Rally is an opportunity to unite the gun violence prevention (GVP), LGBTQ, black, law enforcement and other communities to end all forms of discrimination and gun violence. Newtown Action Alliance (NAA) has taken a central role in supporting Jason’s efforts to organize the historic rally and we are working with Connecticut Against Gun Violence and Sandy Hook Promise to fill two buses from Newtown to travel to Washington D.C. on August 13th to push for change.

Please help fund the rally and the buses by making a donation today!

As of today, 45 organizations are cosponsoring the rally: National Action Network; Newtown Action Alliance; One Pulse for America; Adelphi University; Washington National Cathedral; The Brady Campaign to End Gun Violence; Americans for Responsible Solutions; Million Mom March; Moms Rising; The Trevor Project; Coalition to Stop Gun Violence; Gays Against Guns; Women Against Gun Violence; New Yorkers Against Gun Violence; UNDER THE GUN; States United to Prevent Gun Violence; The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence; CODE PINK; The Episcopal Diocese of Washington, DC; The Matthew Shepard Foundation; Doctors for America; National Coalition Against Domestic Violence; National Council of Jewish Women; Connecticut Against Gun Violence; Students United Against Gun Violence; Sandy Hook Promise; Rabbis Against Gun Violence; Pride Fund to End Gun Violence; All Saints Church, Pasadena; Gun Violence Prevention Task Force; The Vision Quilt; Cuomo Cole Productions ; Living For 32; A New Routine for America; Safe Tennessee Project; WERK for Peace; The ENOUGH Campaign; Gun Free UH; Stonewall Democratic Club; Episcopal Peace Fellowship ; Greenwich Council Against Gun Violence; Women's Voices Raised for Social Justice; Swish Ally Fund; We The People For Sensible Gun Laws; TOGETHER WE STAND
