National Night Out in Anacortes
August 6th 2024

National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie.  Because we support safe communities through gun violence prevention, we will be tabling as part of the Anacortes event. Watch for details including opportunities to volunteer for a tabling shift.

Thanks to all of you, including the Breadfarm, who helped organize SaSS's table/photo shoot in Edison on Friday.  We talked with many supporters and one non-supporter, so well worth the effort. Wim used the free Breadfarm cookies to lure people into conversations. It was a lovely day and provided a good chance to re-commit ourselves to gun violence prevention.  Our SaSS cards proved the best handout for potential members.

SaSS was happy to host many visitors during the Tulip Festival Street Fair. We chatted about 2024 gun laws that passed and what SaSS is up to. We gave away buttons, ribbons, bracelets, and gun locks. Many thanks to those who stopped to chat and picked up literature. Thank you to the many volunteers who made the table happen all weekend.


Thanks to the Fidalgo Democrats for hosting the Alliance for Gun Responsibility and SaSS on January 9th. It was a great opportunity to learn about what the Alliance and we have been up to, where we've been, and current GVP bills in Washington State.

10th LD workshop.jpeg


Lived up to its vision "to show our strength and unity during these times, and to feature the efforts of our local and state-wide organizations doing the work of keeping Democracy alive" and we very much felt "better connected, informed, inspired..."

SaSS and several other groups and attendees were inspired by the workshops and speakers. Thank you 10th LD Democrats!
