At Oxford City Council’s May 2 meeting, councilors focused on hot-topic issues surrounding the Oxford community and Miami University’s campus, including gun violence. The councilors started off the meeting by officially addressing gun violence in communities around the country. They approved the motion to declare June 2 as National Gun Violence Awareness Day, where citizens will be encouraged to wear orange in recognition of the gun violence problem that faces America today. Two students from Miami University’s Students Demand Action student organization were present at this week’s meeting to thank the council for acknowledging this issue within the Oxford community.
