The Fifth-annual Concert Across America to End Gun Violence Virtual Concert is Wednesday October 7 2020.
This nationwide musical experience, spearheaded by Stop Handgun Violence in Boston, brings together a network of organizations, activists and artists to take a united stand against gun violence.
“In our fifth year, we are focusing once again on raising our voices to get out the vote on gun violence prevention,” said Concert Chair John Rosenthal.
“One hundred Americans die and another 150 are injured with guns every single day and most gun violence is preventable.
We just need our elected officials to prioritize passing effective laws and common sense regulations that have been proven to be effective at the state level without banning most guns.”
The concert will be a virtual livestreamed event with high profile talent like Jackson Browne, Bonnie Raitt, Wynton Marsalis, Melissa Etheridge, John Fogerty and others lending their voices to the gun violence prevention movement.
