Global Week of Action Against Gun Violence: May 31 – June 4, 2021

This year’s call to “Make your voice heard – Unite against gun violence” aims to acknowledge and continue the decades of collective action that Global Week of Action Against Gun Violence was built on. Leading up to The Seventh Biennial Meeting of States (BMS7) on the UN Programme of Action (UNPoA), we are encouraging members and advocates to make their voices heard against gun violence. 

Proliferation of arms and lax regulations continue to endanger our communities, and more specifically, women. Throughout the week, we are asking that members and allies work collectively to advocate for:

  • more effective regulation of guns and ammunition, 
  • to disarm domestic violence, 
  • include more voices in finding solutions to gun violence, 
  • and support survivors of gun violence.

For this years campaign, IANSA is providing resources for members and supporters to help make their voice heard, such as; a social media toolkit to help spread awareness, a video (below) with a discussion guide to spark important conversations, and postcard templates to mail to government officials.
