ACTIONS TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE: USE HASHTAG #YELLOWTAPE
Tape your yard A crime scene is still an attention grabbing sight. Wrap your house, porch, car and post photos on all of your media spots. WHEN?
Tie a different yellow ribbon We all related to the “tie a yellow ribbon” symbol of hope and caring…..we can tie “Act Now” yellow tape on trees in our yards or at real gun crime scenes
Enlist your neighbors Get your entire block to display the tape for a huge impact. One whole neighborhood on a specific date will be very strong!
Alert the media Send a photo to your neighborhood Newspaper for a story and photo shoot and post that on your Facebook.
Involve your “groups” Spread the word to all your associates - church, SCHOOL, WORK, exercise, book, Bible study, Kiwanis, VFW – more tape, more attention to the cause.
Write your representative a personal email. Large email petitions are not as effective as a personal e-mail from a constituent to their representative.
WHAT YOU AND YELLOW TAPE CAN DO
Your ability to influence others is significant. Rally your friends and neighbors to join you in making a neighborhood anti-gun violence statement. Stake your yards and houses with Yellow Tape and show that you want action on gun violence now! Let’s make ACT NOW//STOP GUN VIOLENCE tape a national symbol to rally the effort against gun violence.
