Nationwide Reading

    December 14, 2020

    Our goal: to spark critical conversations about gun violence with over 418 staged readings of #ENOUGH plays across the country. 

     

    And we are going to do those simultaneously on the same day, Monday, December 14, 2020 - the 8th anniversary of Sandy Hook.

    Why 418? Because we want to match the number of readings produced to the number of mass shootings in 2019.1

    We know, that sounds insane...but which part? The fact we want to do 418 readings or the fact that there will be more than 418 mass shootings in the US in one year - which is the most our country has had in the past 5 years.2

    It's time for all communities to have conversations about gun violence.

    And YOU can lead that conversation!

    We're inviting middle and high schools, theatres, and other organizations to produce staged readings of #ENOUGH plays in their community.

    Will you join us?

    IN 2019 THERE WERE

    418

    MASS SHOOTINGS IN AMERICA

    OUR GOAL IS TO MATCH

    1-for-1

    WITH ONE READING OF #ENOUGH FOR EVERY MASS SHOOTING THAT OCCURS IN 2019

    THE DATE OF THE READING IS

    Dec. 14

    THE 8TH ANNIVERSARY OF SANDY HOOK
