The Gun Violence Memorial Project, a moving tribute to the many lives taken by gun violence, is now open to the public at The National Building Museum in Washington D.C through September 25, 2022.
Local survivors are invited to contribute your loved one’s objects to be a part of this meaningful memorial. Objects can be delivered to the Building Museum (401 F St NW, Washington, DC 20001), Saturday, June 5th 11am-4pm (RSVP here) and Sunday, June 6th 11am-4pm (RSVP here).
What to bring: Selecting an object is a deeply personal choice. Please take your time in selecting a remembrance object. Because of the public nature of the exhibit, the physical constraints in brick size, and the commitment to generating productive and healing dialogue, remembrance objects will only be accepted if they meet the specified criteria. Click here for the criteria and instructions.
There will be three additional collection events over the course of the next year, so this isn't the only option - but we are certainly excited to resume collection after more than a year's delay!
Please share this with your network - this is for anyone to contribute to.
If you have any questions. Or would like to discuss selecting a remembrance object, please do not hesitate to reach out to Pastor Jackie Jackson at [email protected]
