Whats your " Stop The War and Violence" Social Platform Camaign ?
As gun violence ravages throughout America, our most marginalized groups like BIPOC, LGBTQ folks, and women become the intended targets of mass shootings, as hateful speech becomes normalized every day. This happens in El Paso, Las Vegas, and Charleston, where safe places have turned into a battlefield. It is essential that we stop the war and violence by advocating for true gun reform policies in America so that all citizens feel safe. Addressing our most vulnerable at the margins impacts changes amongst the masses.
