Congress has been on recess for seven weeks and in this time over 4,400 people have died from gun violence. Join CODEPINK, WERK for Peace, Gays Against Guns DC, and a broad coalition of intersectional gun violence prevention groups to dance and die-in for peace.
Meet at the Capitol South Metro Station (BL, OR, SV lines) at 12:00, we will leave shortly after to dance up and around Independence Ave and do various die-ins at different congressional buildings.
We will dance until 2pm, but feel free to leave if you need to head back to work!
We will dance to claim space and demand common sense gun reform (such as universal background checks, ban assault weapons, and police reform). Wear bright colors and get ready to WERK it for peace!
