Lane Tech Community,
In the wake of the events that took place last week in Parkland Florida, Lane Tech Media Crew was distraught by the lack of conversation surrounding the tragedy and the extreme toll of gun violence. We want to be proactive in raising awareness about the necessity for change regarding the culture surrounding gun violence and gun regulation, and we want even more to emphasize the importance of our voices in the national conversation about these topics.
Join us on Wednesday February 28th in wearing All Black With Orange Highlights/Ribbons in order to promote discussion, and to make our voices count. (Black in solidarity with the victims of gun violence, and orange because it is a color for gun violence awareness.) We will be passing out orange ribbons to all first period classes on Wednesday.
Spread the word! Let all your friends know, share the posts you see regarding this event on social media, and use our hashtag: #whenwillitstop The more uniform we are, the more powerful our message is.
We need to be heard, we need to stop gun violence.
