FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
#NotMe Day June 1, 2019
Women across the country will unite to show they are “empowered self-protectors” and refuse to be victims.
LUGOFF, SC – Sandhill Shooting Sports and the Kershaw County chapter of The Well Armed Woman (TWAW) Shooting Chapters invites women to head to a local shooting range on Saturday, June 1, 2019, for #NotMe Day. Together they will stand in solidarity with sister self-protectors and show the world they refuse to be a victim or to say #NeverAgain to ever being a victim again. Each participant will fire three rounds to symbolize: I am empowered, I am prepared, I will not be a victim.
“Women are tired of being the prey of violent criminals and are doing what it takes to protect themselves and their loved ones,” shares Carrie Lightfoot, #NotMe Day Organizer and founder of The Well Armed Woman Shooting Chapters. “#NotMe Day is an opportunity for all women to join together and show the world that women refuse to be forever bound to the unequal battlefield of violence,” Lightfoot continued.
Women are asked to wear the color purple, head to a local range and fire their symbolic rounds at any time during the day on June 1st. Participants are encouraged to share their photos on all social media platforms with the hashtag #NotMe and include #NeverAgain if they have been victims of violence in the past.
Sandhill Shooting Sports, the host range for the Kershaw County TWAW chapter is a woman-owned shooting range in Lugoff and will have a complimentary target available for women who would like to participate in #NotMe Day.
This event was inspired by a passionate speech given by Susan LaPierre, Co-Chair of NRA Women’s Leadership Forum and is a wonderful opportunity for all women to stand united as competent and courageous self-protectors.
