Re:  Free educational presentations for PTA meetings

GOAL:  To protect our children

Date:  November 30, 2017

As part of our educational programing on “Child Access Prevention” (of guns), the Michigan Coalition to Prevent Gun Violence (MCPGV), is offering free one-hour presentations of ASK (Asking Saves Kids), to all Michigan school district parent organizations.   These presentations, which include a video and a short guided discussion, have been made available through our collaboration with the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence and the Michigan Million Mom March.

Eight children and teens are killed by guns each day in the U.S.   Forty others are shot and survive.  80% of unintentional firearm deaths of kids under 15 occur in or around a home.  One in three homes with children have guns, many left unlocked or loaded. The ASK program promotes a common sense approach to help keep kids safe when visiting others’ homes by encouraging parents to ask “is there an unlocked gun in your house?”  This simple question has the power to save a child’s life.

ASK workshops are intended as tools for parents, community groups and educators to increase awareness and action around the dangers of guns in homes where children visit and play.  This hour long presentation is being offered to educators, school boards and parent-teacher organizations.  If you are interested in scheduling an ASK presentation in your school district, or wish to have more information regarding this program, please contact us via email at micoalition2preventgunviolence@gmail.com.  Write “ASK PRESENTATION” in the subject line.
