Last week we saw a historic and unprecedented Democratic sit-in on the House to urge its members to take up what it has long ignored – gun violence prevention. Now it is now up to us as people of faith to take this message to our legislators.
Your Representative is home for the July 4th Recess and this is a perfect time for you to remind them that ignoring the epidemic of gun violence will not protect public safety. Every day 91 people in the United States are killed by a gun. Yet, the House and Senate continue to act as if this is not happening.
Take this opportunity to let them know yow you feel. Use this toolkit to organize a letter drop through your Congregation. Urge your Rep to expand background check and ban assault weapons.
