Want to stop gun violence? Let’s Rock It To Stop It on September 25!


Join Ceasefire Oregon on Sunday, September 25, from noon to 6 PM, at Pioneer Courthouse Square


September 25th was designated by Congress as the Day of Remembrance of Murder Victims.  In 2007, Congress designated September 25 as the National Day of Remembrance for Murder Victims. And while two out of every three victims are killed with a firearm, the day of “remembrance” is the only thing Congress has done to acknowledge this loss. We are respectful of what the day stands for, but we must demand that our legislators take action to stop this carnage.

Who is presenting “The Concert Across America to End Gun Violence”
Our technology partners are Celly and Cloud Four, two great technology companies in Portland. Our co-sponsor is Augustana Lutheran Church. Presenting organizations are Oregon Physicians for Social ResponsibilityMoms Demand Action, The Brady Campaign of Portland, Oregon NOW and Gun Owners for Responsible Ownership.
Why are you hosting this event?

  • To honor our loved ones taken from us by gun violence.
  • To educate people about gun violence in Oregon. (For example, did you know that 85% of all gun deaths in Oregon are suicides? That’s one per day.)
  • To raise awareness about what can be done to reduce gun violence–even if Congress won’t act.

Of course, a concert wouldn’t really be a concert without music! If your group wants to sing, share poetry, table, sponsor or just volunteer, email us at 503-451-3630 TODAY or click the links below:
