A MAN WAS SHOT YESTERDAY

A MAN WAS SHOT YESTERDAY is an anti-gun violence project.  It is based on a banner the NAACP would fly outside their New York office window whenever there was a lynching as part of their anti-lynching campaign in the 1920's and 1930's.  The banner read  "A MAN WAS LYNCHED YESTERDAY."    

 

The A MAN WAS SHOT YESTERDAY poster should be hung for a day in a public place whenever a man, woman, or child is shot in your city.  You can track this on the police blotter in your local newspaper, online, or through other means.
