Take action: “Protect Children, Not Guns”

Dear Evanston,

Late (but important) notice:

Today! From 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary-Evanston Children's Defense Fund Freedom School invites the community to join them in taking action to “Protect Children, Not Guns” and encourage gun violence prevention.

The Freedom School will join more than 180 Children’s Defense Fund Freedom Schools sites in 87 cities and 28 states across the country for a National Day of Social Action to “PROTECT CHILDREN NOT GUNS.”

The CDF Freedom Schools program provides summer enrichment that helps children fall in love with reading and empowers them to believe in their ability to make a difference.

The National Day of Social Action is the cornerstone of the civic engagement component of the CDF Freedom Schools program that encourages community service and social justice advocacy.


Community members should meet at Family Focus Evanston at 1 p.m. today. The group will march from Family Focus to the Lorraine Morton Civic Center, where a community rally will take place from 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.
