Sign Their Yearbook

Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Media / Use of PR / 2017

It’s American tradition to sign each other’s yearbook at the end of high school, but the reality is that over 2000 children die every year as a result of gun related violence before they get a chance to. Together with New Yorkers Against Gun Violence we created “Sign Their Yearbook”, which centers around a physical yearbook in honour of all the students that never got the chance to be in one. The signatures collected on a campaign website were printed in the book and handed over to the US Congress as an official petition to strengthen the gun laws.
