Sussex County, NJ. - On Sunday, September 23rd, Sussex County will participate once again in the Concert Across America to End Gun Violence. 

The local event will be held from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Sussex County Fairgrounds, in Augusta, NJ in conjunction with a nationwide event that day that will bring together hundreds of communities across the country to remember the victims of gun violence and to commit to taking actions to reduce gun violence. Last year more than 250 cities participated in the concert. This year’s event will be held just two days before the National Day of Remembrance for Murder Victims. 

The Northern New Jersey event is being sponsored locally by the Sussex County Chapter of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, Action Together Sussex County, Mountain Ledge Music, and the Skylands Songwriters Guild
