4/8 - Thank you so much to everyone who helped us hit our goal! We’ll see you on April 20th!
UPDATE: 4/6: We are humbled by the amount of support we have gotten, both in donations and support. Along with extending our program to include more survivors and merchandise, we have officially decided to become a 501C organization. We are working with lawyers to make this happen, and can't wait for April 20th and beyond.
UPDATE 4/3: Thanks to all of the generous donations, we have expanded our program, and thus our budget to $7,000 to include posters, action tables, and transportation and hotels for survivors of gun violence who are speaking at the event.
NYC Says Enough, a coalition of New York City students fighting for comprehensive gun reform, is raising money for a stage, sound system, and permits for our rally on April 20, 2018. The rally will be held in Washington Square Park, and we are expecting at least 5,000 students from over 20 major NYC schools to attend.
All the proceeds will go towards obtaining permits, a stage, permit costs, sound systems, merchandise, flying survivors from Columbine and Parkland to NYC to speak, and becoming a 501c organization.
We have received estimates and believe that this will cost about $6,500 dollars. We are asking for $7,000 to other related costs such as meeting spaces or miscellaneous costs that may unexpectedly arise. Any and all excess money will be donated to various gun violence charities.
As a group run entirely by students, we have encountered some difficulties in raising sufficient funds for an event we are sure will be incredibly profound. We deeply appreciate any contribution you can make!
Note: As we are students, one of our parents, Stephanie Weiner, will be withdrawing funds and dispersing them to the appropriate parties and vendors on behalf of our organization.
