The groups below helped me organize special benefit screenings of “Bowling for Columbine” around the country. If you’d like to help them, please get in contact with them and see what you can do.

1 Embarcadero Center

Two screenings: 7:00 PM & 8:00 PM

A benefit screening for the Legal Community Against Violence, and the General Assistance Advocacy Program.

To get tickets: Call LCAV at 415-433-2062 and GAAP at 415-928-8191.

About the groups:

Formed in the wake of the 1993 assault weapons massacre at a high-rise office building in San Francisco, Legal Community Against Violence (LCAV) is dedicated to reducing deaths and injuries from firearms through regulation and education. LCAV's project, the Firearms Law Center, is a leading resource for information on federal, state and local regulation of firearms and produces legal research and analysis, conducts educational programs, and mobilizes attorneys to inspire and support legally defensible firearms regulations throughout the United States.

GAAP serves homeless and marginally housed San Franciscans by helping them obtain the public benefits to which they are entitled. So long as there is a need for public benefits, GAAP provides education, empowerment and advocacy to our clients through the involvement of law students and community volunteers. GAAP strives to affirm the human dignity of all the people served and to hold public agencies to the same standard.

The Million Mom March
Founded in 1999, the Million Mom March is a national grassroots, chapter-based organization dedicated to preventing gun death and injury and supporting victims and survivors of gun violence. The Million Mom March focuses on education and advocacy through grassroots activity across the country and seeking responsible limits on gun access and use. On Mother's Day 2000, more than 750,000 people marched on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. and tens of thousands of others marched in towns across America, to demonstrate their support for sensible gun laws. On October 1, 2001, the Million Mom March merged with the Brady Campaign and the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence. By combining the experience, talent, and resources, of two powerful organizations, we are better positioned to pass national laws that prevent gun violence in this country, rather than legislation to placate gun lobby. With one loud voice, we will continue to cry out that we love our children more than the gun lobby loves its guns!

Because People Matter is an all-volunteer local bimonthly bringing independent progressive non-corporate news and views to 18,000 readers in the Sacramento area. Supported by the generosity of subscribers, it's been publishing for over ten years now. Subscriptions are $15. We always need writers, distributors, and subscribers and readers. You can contact us at and at (916) 444-3203.

Sacramento-Yolo Peace Action is an all-volunteer chapter of a national, grassroots organization that works to educate and mobilize the public to change U.S. foreign, military, and domestic policy. They seek the end of the development and use of weapons of mass destruction, the end of covert and overt US military intervention against other nations, and the pursuit of peace through international and domestic economic, social and political justice. They can be found on the web at:

The Alliance for Justice is a national association of environmental, civil rights, mental health, women's, children's and consumer advocacy organizations.

Lansing, MI
Tuesday, October 22

The Michigan Partnership to Prevent Gun Violence (MPPGV), created in 1995 in response to the growing national and state concern about the prevalence and serious impact of gun violence, brings together the professional communities of law (including law enforcement), medicine, and public health in collaborative inter-professional planning, policy formation and implementation, and public education to reduce and prevent gun violence in Michigan. The MPPGV On-Target Coalition is a sister organization that provides on-going opportunities for community discussion throughout the state about gun violence prevention. Through membership in the On-Target Coalition citizen activists work with professional staff to increase public awareness of gun violence and to lobby elected officials about the importance of sensible gun laws that protect the health and lives of Michigan citizens while respecting the safe, lawful use of firearms for organized shooting sports, hunting, target practice, law enforcement.
