Spent the morning in Baltimore at a #StudentsDemandAction #WearOrange event. Here with our @MomsDemand Baltimore lead, Cindy Camp, and local student leaders.
Antonio Moore talks about the need for young people in Baltimore to demand an end to the gun violence tearing at the fabric of local communities. Four years in a row, Baltimore has seen more than 300 homicides - most by guns - and 2019 is on pace to match that number.
Elijah Miles talks about how gun violence is fostered in cities like Baltimore by economic inequity and social injustice.

@olgaNYC1211 Doing nothing is not an option. Here are ten simple things you can do today to make a difference:
#DoSomething
@olgaNYC1211 Buy this sign for about $15 from "Signs of Justice" .com and put it in your yard. Better yet, buy 10 signs and get your friends and neighbors to put them in their yards too! #SignsOfJustice
@olgaNYC1211 Sign up for Postcards to Voters. #PostcardsToVoters @tonythedemocrat
Sending hand-written postcards is one of the most effective things you can do.

Today, we #WearOrange for National Gun Violence Awareness Day to remember those who have lost their lives to gun violence & demand action to stop this tragic epidemic
I'm proud to see my staff #WearOrange & work each and every week to find solutions to stopping the gun violence epidemic
There is legislation Congress could act on now that would help address gun violence, including expanding background checks, banning assault weapons and closing a loophole that allows firearms to be fired at the rate of automatic weapons—time for Congress to act & pass these bills

I got an orange tattoo for my friend @fred_guttenberg whose daughter Jaime was shot & killed in the Parkland mass shooting. I didn't get the honor of meeting Jaime, but I've met Fred & I proudly stand with him. It's position right under Dawn's name!
#NeverAgain #NeverAgainMSD
The good pain of this tattoo is nothing compared to the never-ending pain Fred & his family have to now endure. This weekend is #WearOrange weekend & I thought it was fitting that I got an orange tattoo to start the weekend & to honor Jaime. #SurvivorStrong
After Jaime's murder, Fred started Orange Ribbons For Jaime which is a 501(C)(3) foundation whose purpose will be to support causes important to Jaime in life, but also causes that will deal with why her life was tragically cut short. orangeribbonsforjaime.org

5 yrs ago at a meeting w/my constituents in Tucson, AZ, a troubled young man opened fire, injuring 12 & killing 6. I was shot in the head.
When I was shot, the bullet tore through the left side of my brain, an injury that is almost always fatal. Somehow, I survived.
Today, speaking is hard for me. My eyesight isn’t very good. My right arm & right leg remain mostly paralyzed. vogue.com/13442030/natio…
