FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
NYS SENATOR ERIC ADAMS AND CIVIL RIGHTS LAWYER NORMAN SIEGEL TO HOST PRESS CONFERENCE TO ANNOUNCE HANDS ACROSS THE BRIDGE TO DENOUNCE GUN VIOLENCE
State Senator Eric Adams, Civil Rights Lawyer Norman Siegel, elected officials, union leaders and concerned New Yorkers will hold a press conference on Wednesday, December 19, to announce and invite all New Yorkers to participate in “Hands Across the Brooklyn Bridge,” symbolically showing opposition to gun violence.
Enough is enough: from Columbine to Virginia Tech to Aurora – and now Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. It is time for New Yorkers and all Americans to call for action to stop the gun violence that is eating away at America. Specific suggestions for reform will be announced.
The plan is to energize New Yorkers to come and speak out on Sunday evening, December 23rd at 5:00pm, on the Brooklyn Bridge to denounce the killings that occurred at the Sandy Hook Elementary School and the ever prevalent gun violence in our communities. Hopefully, thousands of New Yorkers linked hand in hand on this historic venue will send a visible and immediate message to our elected officials in the White House, Congress and State Capitols that the time to act against gun violence is NOW.
