During the IGO and NGO presentations of #RevCon3 yesterday, we had the pleasure of hearing the following people speak: Torbjorn Lindskog of @worldforunonshootingactivities , Sheldon Clare of Canada’s National Firearms Association, Rebecca Peters of @iansa_un , Seydi Gassama of @iansa_un and @amnestysenegal , Ema Tagicakibau of @iansa_un ’s Women’s Network, Dr. Widad Akreyi of @iansa_un ’s MENA region, Alex Galvez of @iansa_un ’s Survivor’s Network, and Parkland shooting survivor Mei-Ling Ho-Shing. While Tagicakibau emphasized the need for women to be included in the drafting and implantation of arms control policies, Ho-Shing called on the member states attending the conference to protect youth around the world. We here at NVI-NY thank all the speakers for their incredible contributions to yesterday’s event, and we were honored to meet with some of them afterwards! #EndGunViolence #UNPoA #DisarmamentThatSavesLives #SALW #CivilSociety @its.meiling - 2 days ago
