March For Our Lives Art Installation Calls Out Congress' Inaction on Gun Violence

This new art installation is calling out Congress on its inaction to prevent gun violence.

735 people die in the U.S. from gun violence each week, according to the CDC.

March for Our Lives visualized each of those deaths with religious memorials assembled into the shape of a heart.

There were roughly 340 mass shootings in the U.S. in 2018 alone.

“It is a message from them to look past to the reality of gun violence,” explained March For Our Lives’ Matt Deitsch.

“These are exactly what is erected outside of places that have mass shootings, day-to-day violence.

These makeshift memorials are erected every single day in this country with names and faces.” The installation, A Week in America, points out differences in how New Zealand and America have responded to mass shootings.

A week after 50 people were killed in two New Zealand mosques, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern rallied all sides of government to ban assault rifles and high-capacity magazines.

The installation also honors the first anniversary of the March for Our Lives demonstration in Washington, D.C.

While work is needed to achieve their goal of banning assault rifles, activists say they are encouraged by changes in culture and conversation.
