The outreach workers, youth organizers, and mediation center staff hit the streets with candy, facepaint, and S.O.S. material to talk to people about gun violence. We were able to give out over 200 bags of candy and SOS “Don’t Shoot I Want to Grow Up” palm cards to children and their guardians. It was a much needed event in the wake of the hurricane.
We understand the importance of humility in sharing our smiles from yesterday’s Halloween community tabling, as well as the equal importance of bringing good news amid all of the tragedy the Sandy brought and left.
