End Violence Now LLC Calls for Peaceful Protest While Raising Money for Anti-Violence Charities.

“We’re a small company with a big mission to help end violence one t-shirt at a time.” - Alex Wetmore Founder, End Violence Now LLC

End Violence Now LLC launches a new line of t-shirts created to raise awareness of the fight to end violence. EVN founder Alex Wetmore was overwhelmed turning on the news and hearing about the many acts of hate and violence happening across the nation this past summer. From the Pulse Nightclub shooting in Orlando, to the riots in Texas and Wisconsin, to the rise in hate crimes, Alex decided she needed to do something. A creative director/designer by trade, Alex put her skills to use and designed the End Violence Now t-shirt. To start, she chose three non-profits focused on working to end gun, racial and LGBTQ violence and assigned each cause a color – red, black and purple. 50% percent of the net proceeds will go to help these anti-violence charities: States United to Prevent Gun Violence, The Working Group/Not in Our Town and the National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs (NCAVP) 

“The desire to spread the message that gun, racial and LGBTQ violence MUST stop, paired with the idea of helping organizations that lead the charge, led to the birth of End Violence Now,” said Alex Wetmore “We’re a small company with a big mission to help end violence one t-shirt at a time.”

The red shirt will help “End Gun Violence” and benefits States United to Prevent Gun
Violence. "We are thankful to our allies at "End Violence Now" for helping to raise awareness that we, as citizens, must be vigilant and uncompromising in our goals to stop the flow of gun violence in our nation,” said Julia Wyman, Executive Director of States United to Prevent Gun Violence. “We need to advocate about it, write about it, sing about it and never be afraid to speak our truth.”

The black shirt will help “End Racial Violence” and benefits The Working Group/Not in Our Town. “Not In Our Town is excited to partner with End Violence Now,” said Harold Leffall, Executive Director of Not In Our Town. “As a movement to stop hate, address bullying, and build safe, inclusive communities for all, our collective work is even more critical today in addressing the unprecedented violence rising in communities across the country.”

The purple shirt will help “End LGBTQ violence” and benefits the National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs (NCAVP). “The National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs (NCAVP) is excited to partner with End Violence Now to raise awareness of the violence that LGBTQ and HIV-affected people face across the nation every day,” said Beverly Tillery, Executive Director of the New York City Anti-Violence Project, which coordinates NCAVP. “The coalition works to prevent, respond to, and end all forms of violence against and within our communities.”

T-shirts are $25 and can be ordered at endviolencenow.org

End Violence Now LLC will further expand its t-shirt offerings in 2017. Different shirt colors will benefit more charities and will address other types of violence such as: domestic violence (pink shirt), animal violence (brown shirt), cyber violence (grey shirt) and violence against children (light blue shirt).
