Stop Gun and Gang Violence Rally

Friends of Wingate Park invites you to our 3rd Stop Gun and Gang Violence Rally. This year’s event will be on the lawn of Wingate Park on April 27th between 3 P.M. to 7 P.M. Organizers say Wingate Park is the right place to hold this year’s rally because it’s named after George W. Wingate, the founder of the National Rifle Association and its president for more than 20 years. Friends of Wingate Park encourage neighbors, community leaders, and police officers to work together to change the current gun laws. We must offer solutions to this pandemic of violence that’s killing our children. We will have special guest speakers; elected officials, police officers and live performances.
