What it’s all about:
b-side by ken & dana, GUN reclamation project
Living in NYC, it often seems we never go more than a week without hearing of a tragedy caused by guns and violence. Rather than spend our energy on fear or contempt, we’ve decided to take this instrument that represents violence and re-frame it as a symbol of non-violence. We want to commit ourselves and those who purchase these pieces to keeping guns off our streets, so for each work sold from this collection, a contribution will be made to the NYC “Gun Buy-Back Program”. Through this program, the D.A.’s office and the NYPD partner with local churches to offer $200 bank cards for any firearm turned in at one of their one day events. Since 2008, 5700 guns have been taken off New York’s streets.
