Sandy Hook Shootings: Public Memorial in Shoreline marking five years

Tuesday, December 12, 2017

The Shoreline Group of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America will hold a public memorial for the 26 victims lost to gun violence five year ago on December 14, 2012 at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT.

The memorial will be held at Briarcrest Elementary School, The Briar Patch outdoor garden, 2715 NE 158th St., Shoreline 98155 on Saturday, December 16th, 2-3pm. Please RSVP

The group is donating a tree to the garden in commemoration, which will be dedicated by hanging 26 handcrafted ornaments; one for each of the victims of the Sandy Hook tragedy. The event also will include speakers, a recitation of the names, a time for reflection and music written for the occasion.

The event is part of a nationwide tribute in partnership with the Newtown Foundation, Newtown Action Alliance, Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, Everytown Survivor Network, Faiths United to Prevent Gun Violence, Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, Organizing for Action, States United to Prevent Gun Violence, St Mark's Episcopal Church and Women's March.

Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America is a grassroots movement of American mothers and fathers fighting for public safety measures that respect the Second Amendment and protect people from gun violence. Moms Demand Action campaigns for new and stronger solutions to lax gun laws and loopholes that jeopardize the safety of our children and families.
