April Chapter Meeting – Gun Violence – Actions We Can Take

Wednesday, April 18 at 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM

IBEW 966 N Liberty St, Jacksonville, FL 32206

Gun violence has been the focus of conversation since the tragedy in Parkland. The unfortunate reality is that our communities suffer from the often deadly impact of gun violence on an almost daily basis. Long before Parkland occurred the devastation caused by guns used in domestic violence, criminal activity, and carelessness, has taken a horrible toll on mothers, grandmothers, sisters, children, and families. Until we unite and take a stand, and the issue of gun violence is addressed locally, our communities will never truly be safe.

Join us April 18, as we explore the issue of gun violence in our local area, survivor needs, and what we can do to demand action and drive positive change. Chapter Meeting RSVP

Please join the Women’s March Strides for Pride run and help make a difference in the futures of LGBTQ+ young people who rely on JASMYN every day.

Register today!

When you register join Women’s March! Early Registration rate ends March 25.

This year the party is moved to the corner of Post and Park in Riverside Park to better engage with 5 Points businesses, give more room for food trucks, and even have the race end under the trees right at the vendor village. The new 5K course will feature two opportunities to hit a water station, more volunteers helping with turns, and more places where folks can gather to cheer the runners on. It will still pass the JASMYN campus, where folks will get to see where the magic happens that all proceeds from this day supports.
