A portion of all proceeds will be donated to:
1. Everytown for Gun Safety : Formerly Mayors Against Illegal Guns, Everytown for Gun Safety is now a coalition made up of Mayors Against Illegal Guns, Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America and survivors of Americas many gun violence incidents. Together, they lobby for gun control legislation on a local and federal level, as well as provide a support network for gun violence survivors. This is a GRASS ROOTS approach to stopping gun violence.
2. Americans for Responsible Solutions : Started by former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords in the wake of her own brush with death after being shot, ARS is focused on commonsense solutions to Americas widespread gun violence issue. Giffords and her husband Mark Kelly call themselves Second Amendment supporters, but are also committed to lobbying for expanded background checks, stiffer gun trafficking penalties and funding studies and research on the causes of gun violence. This is an ACTIVE WITH STATE POLICYMAKERS approach to stopping gun violence.
In addition, we plan to have voter registration occurring on site during the 3 day festival so people can actively engage and vote for representation and leadership on this important issue.
