Tomorrow, The League of Young Voters in partnership with NAACP College & Youth Division, Casey Family Programs and will host No Guns Allowed: Examining the Underlying Triggers Behind Gun Violence, a panel on the topic of gun violence in Washington D.C. during the Congressional Black Caucus.
In this conversation, moderated by the Executive Director of the League of Young Voters, Dr. Rob “Biko” Baker, influential community leaders, political tastemakers and key members of media will discuss practical solutions to eliminate gun violence which greatly affects our world. This is the League of Young Voters’ fourth No Guns Allowed discussion, a national campaign Snoop Lion aka Snoop Dogg. The initiative was inspired by Snoop’s pro-peace “No Guns Allowed” single from his reggae-influenced Reincarnated album. The song’s message inspired the League of Young Voters to partner with Snoop Lion for this anti-gun violence platform to proactively stress the importance of putting the guns down.
Panelists include, Sammie Dow (National Director, NAACP Youth and College Division), Rahiel Tesfamariam (Columnist, Washington Post; Founder/Editor-In-Chief, Urban Cusp), Daniel Maree (Executive Director & Founder of Millions Hoodies for Justice), Jamira Burley (Executive Director, Philadelphia Youth Commission), and Anton House (Graduate Student, Howard University).
Check out the panel here tomorrow at 10:30 am EST/7:30 am PST and join the conversation online using the hashtag #NoGunsAllowed.
