NO HARM VIP and Moms Demand Action
 Gun Violence Awareness Block Party on June 4

ANNAPOLIS, MD (May 31, 2023) – The City of Annapolis NO HARM VIP violence prevention program, in partnership with Moms Demand Action, will host a Gun Violence Awareness Block Party from 3 to 6 p.m. on Sunday, June 4 at the Pip Moyer Recreation Center. This fun-filled event is free and open to the public. 

The Block Party seeks to raise awareness of the damage that gun violence causes in our neighborhoods, communities, and homes. At the event, participants will have access to resources, work together to create better communication, and develop ways to help educate fellow community members. The Gun Violence Awareness Block Party is a place to empower Annapolis residents and provide tools to resist gun violence.

Mayor Gavin Buckley will attend the event, along with other elected officials and numerous partners including the Annapolis Police Department, the Office of Community Services, and a range of community organizations. “June is Gun Violence Awareness Month and this Block Party is one way the City of Annapolis will be raising awareness and working to prevent gun violence in our community,” said Mayor Buckley.  “The City of Annapolis and our No Harm team will continue to lead on this issue and I know  that working with our many partners we can make a difference.”

The Block Party will include food, music, games, vendors, raffles, and community conversations. The event is open to all ages.
