The Labor Day Weekend saw over ten people shot in and around Birmingham, AL. Gun violence has touched Americans all over the country, but it’s time for people in Birmingham to say “Enough is Enough”, and make a commitment to ending gun violence. Today at 3 PM, radio stations, 98.7 Kiss FM, 95.7 Jamz and 610 WAGG will visit local high schools to hand out orange ribbons to those willing to commit themselves to getting rid of this scourge that staining this wonderful city. Orange ribbons are used nationwide as a symbol of a desire to end gun violence.
We’re looking for 10,000 students, parents, teachers, and members of the community to wear orange ribbons to help spread the message that “Enough is Enough” to show their commitment to helping finding permanent solutions to ending gun violence. One life taken is too many, today we take a stand and we ask you to stand with us.
Through conflict resolution techniques, mediation, and communication we can take the first steps to ending this cycle of violence. We are asking that everyone share photos wearing their orange ribbons on their social media profiles with the hashtags #626 #peaceinourstreets and #enoughisenough, so that the chorus of thousands demanding change drown out those that seek to cause pain in our great city. Today is the day we all say, “Enough is Enough”.
