On March 24th, while the nation walks with students in Washington DC, two local residents, an Art Gallery owner and an Artist that creates sculptures out of metal melted from guns, will be leading 100+ students, families and supportive community members down the streets of Menlo Park supporting the students demanding change.  They will be starting at Art Ventures Gallery and walking to Hillview Middle School and back.

Art Ventures Gallery owner Katharina Powers and local Bay Area Artist Lin Evola, an artist that creates Peace Angels from metal melted from guns are two passionate women that have had enough of senseless gun violence. 

"I met Lin Evola the day after the Parkland, Florida shooting, and I tried to initiate a gun buy back project for Silicon Valley with the mayors. I sent emails to 30 mayors, 4 responded. So my mission is to support the kids. I have four kids on my own. Hence, organizing a Walk for Our Lives in homage to the many marches being held around the country.”

Evola is a force to be reckoned with and has the ears of the many thousands around the world looking for a peaceful change.  She’ll be bringing the Peace Angel to Silicon Valley, setting an example that of wanting a gun free Silicon Valley, and looking to initiate a gun buyback program to get weapons off our streets. Evola has been called the “US Gun Destruction Leader” with recent talks taking place in New York and Washington DC.

Donations towards the Peace Angel for Silicon Valley can be done through the non-profit San Francisco Art Institute.  www.sfai.edu
