Snoop Dogg stars in campaign to fight gun violence
Rapper Snoop Dogg, Seattle Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner, singer Aloe Blacc, and tech leader Ron Conway are all taking part in an anti-gun violence campaign called “No Guns Allowed” to call for divestment from the gun industry.
In partnership with “Unload Your 401k”, a resource for individuals looking for a guns-free retirement fund, the campaign is using the hashtag “#ImUnloading” to inspire people to turn their gun-free pledge into a reality through divesting.
“No Guns Allowed” was established in 2013 and is a non-partisan anti-gun violence campaign established between the League of Young Voters and Snoop Dogg.
Every day, 20 children are admitted to hospitals with gunshot wounds, according to the campaign. Conway is calling on tech companies to offer socially responsible, specifically “no guns allowed,” investment options for employees.
Snoop Dogg said: “I’m unloading for my loved ones that I’ve lost. I’m going all in for gun free investing.”
The ad, from “Campaign to Unload” and “States United to Prevent Gun Violence” is the second installment of support for “Unload Your 401k.”
“Campaign to Unload” is a coalition of more than 50 leaders and organizations committed to helping individuals, employers, and universities divest from gun manufacturers.
