April has been an active month. We spoke with many gun-violence-prevention supporters at Earth Fair, gave talks for schools and community colleges and met with California lawmakers. May will also be busy, and we look forward to having you join us at any or all of our events.

Location to be announced

Please note: Our June 4 monthly meeting will be from 1:00 - 2:30, not at the usual time.
Across the country there is a growing interest in gun violence prevention. Our booth at Earth Fair this month provided a great opportunity to educate and inform San Diego residents about our organization and the importance of voting for local, state and national candidates who support strong gun laws that make our communities safer.
School and Community College Talks Our Education Outreach Committee gave talks to high school student leaders, and to parent groups at a number of community colleges. Many parents were not aware of the dangers of guns in homes where there are also children. Children die daily in unintentional shootings. Please keep your firearms locked and away from young hands. We look forward to seeing you soon. Please be sure to reserve your place for Under the Gun. Seats are going fast.
Sincerely, Carol and
The San Diego Leadership Team
