CASH + QUILTS FOR GUNS
The San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles is showcasing the exhibitions: Guns: Loaded Conversations and Generation of Change: A Movement Not a Moment with East Bay-based Social Justice Sewing Academy.
The exhibitions are on view from April 22nd – July 15th at San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles.
We’re proud to be joining forces with the San Jose Mayor’s office, multiple City Council Districts, San Jose Police Department, and Police Foundation to organize a unique gun buy-back program. Research shows that communities with fewer guns have less gun violence.
Here’s how it works: In exchange for turning in a gun, each individual will receive cash AND a beautiful quilt. And here’s where your generosity can help us make a difference in our community.
Remove one gun.
With a $100 donation, we can remove one gun from the streets of San Jose on your behalf.
Remove one assault weapon.
With a $200 donation, we can remove an assault weapon from the streets of San Jose on your behalf.
With a $500 donation you will be responsible for 5 fewer guns on the streets of San Jose.
