ProgressNow Nevada to host gun violence summit Saturday

A little late in posting this, but hey, points for trying. Here’s the advisory from ProgressNow Nevada about the gun violence summit planned for this Saturday (yes, that means tomorrow). RSVP deadline is TODAY! 

The one-day summit will include training sessions in lobbying and organizing as well as background information about Nevada laws and gun violence statistics. (For instance, did you know that Nevada’s gun-death rate is 40 percent higher than the national average?)
