Yesterday, CeaseFirePA staff set up outside partner school Richard Wright Elementary for a Back2School backpack give away. With backpacks from CeaseFirePA, and supplies donated by Richard Wright teachers and friends of CeaseFirePA, we helped close to 350 kids get ready for a great year. You can watch video here.
Right now, the gun lobby is trying to put guns in our schools – letting teachers, custodians, and cafeteria workers carry guns in school. We know that’s the wrong way to keep our kids safe. So, in addition to fighting those efforts, we wanted to show everyone the right way to do back to school.
