It’s working! Moms are being heard!Posted February 21st, 2013 by Kristin Rowe-Finkbeiner
Great news! Moms’ voices calling for common-sense gun violence prevention laws are working! Today, we’re hearing that support among lawmakers for universal background checks for gun purchases is really gathering steam, with even the likes of Senators Tom Coburn of Oklahoma and Joe Manchin of West Virginia (both “A” rated by the NRA) at the negotiating table to work out a solution.
We’ve got MOMentum and now is a critical time to keep up the pressure!
Can you supercharge our campaign to achieve common-sense gun violence prevention laws by contributing today?
Our voices are powerful. On Valentine’s Day, moms, dads and a choir of kids (really! a choir!) descended on Capitol Hill to deliver thousands of unique, heartfelt valentines directly to our leaders. Each of the valentines highlighted the message that moms and families overwhelmingly want to see common-sense gun regulations and an end to gun violence. Our Valentine’s Day gun safety activities were covered by close to 100 media outlets, including NPR, CNN, Univision and the San Francisco Chronicle.
None of this would have happened without your support. Please help us keep this powerful campaign going!
MomsRising is more than half way to our goal of $20,000 to continue bringing forth moms’ voices for common-sense solutions to keep our families safe. Help get us across the finish line! Pitch in today:
*Each donation, no matter how big or how small, gets us one step closer to our goal and together we are a powerful force!
We know we’ve already made a mighty impression on Congress. But we need to keep up the pressure. We can’t be silent. Together we can make sure that Congress takes real steps to reduce gun violence.
Together we are a powerful voice for our families and communities.
