Terry Slade, Teddy's father, was the featured speaker at the Rockland County Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America Wear Orange event on June 7, 2019 in Nyack Memorial Park. Wear Orange is a weekend dedicated to honoring victims of gun violence such as Teddy. My nonprofit group (Rockland's Moms Demand Action) arranged for the former Tappan Zee Bridge connecting Rockland and Westchester County (now the Governor Mario Cuomo Bridge) to be lit orange the entire weekend at sunset to honor all victims of gun violence.
This photo captures the kindness and dedication of the three men pictured as the sun is beginning to set and the bridge is turning orange. They are incredible people dedicated to ending gun violence in their communities and nationally by advocating for common sense gun violence prevention legislation. I am honored to work with these individuals in such a volunteer capacity and to recognize their kindness.
Thank you for your consideration!
