NEW YORK, March 25, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Mayors Against Illegal Guns today announced that Americans will gather at more than 100 events across the country on Thursday, March 28 as part of the National Day to Demand Action to end gun violence.  While members of Congress are home during the Easter/ Passover recess, Mayors Against Illegal Guns, in conjunction with Organizing for Action, Americans for Responsible Solutions and other groups, will organize events and petition drives and generate an unprecedented number of calls into Senate district offices to call for their representatives to support commonsense gun laws like comprehensive and enforceable background checks.  In Pennsylvania, events will take place in Easton and Philadelphia. 

The National Day to Demand Action will feature hundreds of mayors, law enforcement officials, faith leaders, gun violence survivors and family members, and other Americans who want Congress to take immediate action to strengthen our background check system and reduce gun violence.  The day is expected to be the largest gun violence advocacy event in history and is part of the largest field campaign in U.S. history to address gun violence.  The coalition recently announced that it is hiring organizers and opening campaign offices in ten key states including Pennsylvania. 

In addition to the National Day to Demand Action, the bipartisan coalition will also air ads in key states demanding that political leaders take action to pass commonsense gun reforms during the upcoming Congressional recess, including in Pennsylvania.  Ads can be found here: www.demandaction.org/recessads

Major events in Pennsylvania will take place in the following cities (list in development, all times local):

Easton What: Press Conference/RallyWho: Mayor Sal Panto and volunteersWhen: TBDWhere: Center Square, 3rd and Northampton

Philadelphia What: Press ConferenceWho: Mayor Michael Nutter and volunteers When: 12:00 noonWhere: Widener Library, 2808 West Lehigh Avenue - 28th and Lehigh

About Mayors Against Illegal GunsSince its creation in April 2006, Mayors Against Illegal Guns has grown from 15 members to more than 900 mayors from across the country. We have more than 1.5 million grassroots supporters, making us the largest gun violence prevention advocacy organization in the country.  The bipartisan coalition, co-chaired by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino, has united the nation's mayors around these common goals: protecting communities by holding gun offenders accountable; demanding access to crime gun trace data that is critical to law enforcement efforts to combat gun trafficking; and working with legislators to fix weaknesses and loopholes in the law that make it far too easy for criminals and other dangerous people to get guns.  Learn more at www.mayorsagainstillegalguns.org
