Guns to Gardens Update: Successful Taos Buyback
We just conducted a Guns To Gardens Gun Buyback in Taos, N.M. This was our second gun buyback in Taos. At this gun buyback we took 29 unwanted working firearms off of their streets and out of their community including a sawed off shot gun, semi-automatic guns, and two assault weapons Our next gun buyback will be in Las Cruces on July 28
School Mural to End Gun Violence Project Update: Portal Mural Completed by Sandoval County Students
NMPGV has been working with an amazing group of Sandoval County high school students on our latest mural. This mural is portable and will be going on a tour around New Mexico. We have students from Santo Domingo, San Felipe and Zia Pueblo all working on the mural. A huge thank you to the Santa Ana Pueblo for giving us the space to paint the panels and Lush Cosmetics for the grant that made this mural possible. The mural’s first stop will be the Road to Change Tour Wednesday, July 11th.
Successful Event at Unitarian Church of Santa Fe
We were honored to present to a full house at the Indivisible meeting in Angel Fire to talk about how we can work together on our legislative efforts. We would like to thank the Unitarian Church of Santa Fe for choosing us for their Giving Sunday. We raised over $800.00. Below is the Youtube they made of the four minute presentations:
