women's-marchPlease join NYAGV this Saturday, January 21, for the women’s marches in New York City, Buffalo, and Washington, DC to send the message to stop violence against women in New York and all around the country.

Preventing and reducing gun violence towards women is critical to our efforts as thousands of women fall victim to gun violence each year due to domestic violence and other needless violent crimes.

In the U.S., domestic violence assaults involving a firearm are 12 times more likely to result in death than those involving other weapons or bodily force. Firearms were used in 29% of intimate partner homicides in New York State in 2014–18% in New York City and 38% upstate.

We march together in solidarity to demand that President-Elect Trump, Congress, and our elected officials here in New York, end this country’s epidemic of gun violence and enact reasonable gun safety laws that will protect women and all Americans.
