Gun-Country-nyagvExplore the impact of guns and gun violence on American life through touching stories and performances when you attend “Gun Country.”

Presented by Houses on the Moon Theater Company, the event will be held at Dixon Place on Chrystie Street in New York City on Sunday, March 9 at 7 pm.

This original theater piece–sponsored by NYAGV and other gun safety advocates–was developed from a series of creative storytelling workshops with people whose lives have been directly touched by gun violence. Their stories of loss, struggle and healing are an essential part of the national conversation around guns.

Story-tellers include:

  • A mother who has harnessed her grief over the loss of her murdered son into a traveling memorial of some 3,000 pairs of sneakers, one for every teen killed the year her son died
  • A young man who is coping with his near death experience after being struck by a stray bullet, by daily photographing and blogging his recovery
  • A New York City police officer who formerly served in the U.S. Navy
