1st Quarter Preventable Gun Violence. 2021. Volume One.

1st Quarter Preventable Gun Violence. 2021. Volume One.

Gnashing Teeth Publishing is embarking on an ambitious and necessary project: “1st Quarter Preventable Gun Violence. 2021. Volume One.”  From Jan 1 – Mar 31, there were 126 mass gun violence events. The numbers are going up every day and it has become a dull roar drowned out by our non-stop news cycle.  We must demand better.  

Get Involved

Choose how you want to get involved. You can just Create. You can just Sponsor. You can do both!

Part One – Create

We are seeking 126 poets, writers, essayists, and artists to participate. Each person will select one of these events to write or create art about on one full letter size (8 1/2″ x 11″) page.  Please query using the contact button at the bottom of this page before writing or creating for your preferred event to ensure no one else has selected this event. The submissions will be compiled into a full color perfect bound volume.

Part Two – Sponsor

The second part of this project is equally as important. We intend to send this to each and every elected representative 435 Congressional representatives, 100 Senators, the Vice President, and the President of the United States. That is 537 books. We are asking people to sponsor their elected official by donating $10. This will cover the printing, postage, and shipping supplies. Any more left over at the end of this project will be donated 100% to organizations working to end gun violence. Find your Senator or Congressperson below.

Why Not Both?

You can choose to participate as a creator, a sponsor, or both. 

Please use the lists below to find out if your representative is available to be sponsored. Perhaps you are moved to sponsor more than one. Please tell us WHO you are sponsoring when you donate. Your name will be added to the list.
