50 Mile Walk for Gun Violence - Volunteers Needed


Massachusetts students are planning a 50 Mile walk for gun violence prevention next month, this is part of a national campaign started by youth in Wisconsin. On August 22nd, students will gather in Worcester. Beginning the next morning they will walk west to Springfield, ending on August 26th at Smith and Wesson’s headquarters. Students are demanding that Smith and Wesson stop selling guns outside of Massachusetts that are not allowed to be sold in Massachusetts and for funding from Smith and Wesson for gun trafficking research. In order to accomplish this task, students need a variety of adult volunteers, including adult walkers, first aid helpers, meal preparers and drivers. 

Please help the students reach Smith and Wesson through one of the options below:
