Coalition of 25 Groups Plans June 20 Sleepover Protest at NRA HQ
25 activist groups have joined together for a June 20 sleepover protest against policies that promote gun violence outside the headquarters of the National Rifle Association at 11250 Waples Mill Rd, Fairfax, Virginia. Everyone is welcome to bring a sleeping bag and surround the NRA from 8 PM to 9 AM. Speakers and gun violence documentaries will be available to help fill the hours, and an act of civil disobedience will complete the protest at 9 AM, when the NRA offices open for the day. A special ceremony will take place from 2:02 AM to 5:00 AM to mark the 49 people killed at the recent Pulse nightclub shootings.
