Over the past few months we have come together in the faith community many times to stop gun violence. We made a difference: our congregants made more than 10,000 calls to the Senate on February 4th in our Faiths Calling campaign. Since the Senate debate and vote on a gun violence prevention package is imminent, we are working hard to ensure our next call in day on April 9th rings loudly throughout the chambers of the Senate.  We need you to help ensure our collective efforts are a success.

APRIL 9th Faiths Calling – Interfaith Call-in Day to Prevent Gun Violence

The debate in advance of the Senate vote is about to begin! Call your Senators on April 9th and insist that they act to prevent gun violence! Ensure that the voices of faithful Americans ring throughout the halls of Congress. Demand that we enact universal background checks – and pass other needed gun violence prevention measures such as bans on semi-automatic assault weapons & high-capacity magazines, gun trafficking laws, and improved access to mental health services.
