Since the tragic shooting in Parkland, the national conversation on gun safety has dramatically changed. Students have taken the lead on asking for meaningful and sensible gun reform, and have elevated important and often-ignored discussions about gun violence in communities of color across America. Their leadership has given Americans real hope for a safer future, one with less gun violence and more ethical government.
 
MomsRising members, like so many Americans, have stepped up to the students' call for action: they are have showed up to student-organized school walkouts, marched in solidarity and strength at #MarchForOurLives in cities nationwide, and donated to raise money to print thousands of No NRA Money sign for the marches in Washington, D.C. and Parkland, Florida!
