Saturday February 1 through Saturday February 8, 2020 will mark the second National Gun Violence Survivors Week. The first week of February represents the approximate time that gun deaths in the United States surpass the number of gun deaths experienced by our peer countries in an entire calendar year. Tragically, our gun death rate is 10 times greater than that of our peer countries.
The focus of the week is on sharing survivors’ stories and encouraging allies to amplify their voices. The centerpiece of the campaign is Moments That Survive, a digital storytelling site and campaign in which Americans across the country share defining details of their experiences, in their own words, year-round — objects, places, or actions that take on a new meaning in their lives after enduring gun violence.
