Who Is Wheelchairs Against Guns?
Wheelchairs Against Guns is a non-profit organization of individuals who live with disabilities as a result of gun violence. Each week, members of the organization visit inner city schools to educate students about the negative effects of bullying, gangs, and violence.
Because of their first hand experiences in urban environments, members of WAG are able to provide real world solutions to potentially toxic situations in a way inner city students can relate to and understand.
