Gays Against Guns Human Beings Silent Protest returns in March to specifically honor women who lost their lives to gun violence. For this reason, we chose to hold this event on the International Women’s Day, which is a date celebrated all over the world.
For those of you unfamiliar, our Human Beings are figures veiled and dressed in white who honor victims of gun violence. They remain silent, and carry an image of the person they are honoring. It is a beautiful and profoundly moving experience.
We would honored if you could join us and be a Human Being during this event. Violence against women is a worldwide reality and the numbers only seem to increase day by day. That's why it is so important for us to take a stand, remember these wonderful people who left us and, more importantly, educate the ones who stop to look at the Human Beings.
Last time we did the Silent Protest at Grand Central Station, it was an amazing experience.
