US: City council designates Gun Violence Prevention Day during the Week of Action

On 15 June, Los Angeles City Council passed a resolution that recognises the Global Week of Action Against Gun Violence, and designates 18 June as Gun Violence Prevention Day in the city. The Council also commended Women Against Gun Violence (WAGV), a member of the Women’s Network and supporter of IANSA, for their work to reduce gun violence. To mark the occasion, WAGV will hold a vigil on 18 June. Anyone who wishes to participate is asked to meet outside the City Hall's main entrance at 9:30 am, wearing black in honour of victims of gun violence.
