Tell the world it is time to stand against violence,
because it can happen here!
Our board members are often asked the meaning of “It Can Happen Here,” so we decided to start a photo campaign to answer that question. And we’re asking for your help!
Snap a picture of yourself holding a sign that says “It Can Happen Here – Stand Against Violence” and post it on our Facebook or Twitter page. Then, using our convenient contact tools, send it to your local legislators demanding action to prevent gun violence.
1) Print out this image, or make one yourself that reads “It Can Happen Here – Stand Against Violence.” You could make your own poster, use a chalkboard, draw on the sidewalk with chalk, or on a window with wipe board markers! We can’t wait to see what you come up with! (IMPORTANT: On your print menu, set the Print Layout to Landscape and set it to print in color before printing.)
2) Snap a photo of yourself with your sign: in your home, in front of your school, at your university, at your place of work, in front of your town sign, or in any public place in your community.
4) Tell your legislator you are taking a stand against violence! Send them your picture with a note that says:
Stand with me against violence! Please support violence prevention by standing up for smart gun laws, anti-bullying initiatives, improvements to our education system, increased funding for mental healthcare, parenting support and poverty programs.
Find your legislator’s contact info on our Act page or by visiting our Contact Senators or our Contact House pages. Just search for your state in each list. Feel free to email us with questions at email@example.com!
Most of all—have fun and show us your creativity! Now get to it. We can’t wait to see your photos!
