Poet Takes a Stand Against Gun Violence in the United States

A powerful, thought provoking post by my friend Jamie at jamiededes.com

THE POET BY DAY

What I like about Evelyn Agusto’s effort to help stop gun violence is that she combines poetry with action. She visits high schools to offer students tools that are not self-distructive. Evelyn’s contact info is at the bottom of the poster. Contact her if you’d like her to speak to your local high school.

At this writing, according to the Gun Violence Archive there have been twenty-five school shootings thus far this year resulting in twenty-five deaths and 118 injuries.
