Taking a stand against gun violence

Thoughts and Prayers are not enough.

We need action

Featured Action

Tell Senator Toomey to Support S.42.

S.42 will close gaps in our system and ensure that almost every gun sale will go through a background check. This is one of the first bills taken up in this new session of Congress, and we are ready to see it move swiftly. But it can’t get stalled in the Senate. Please ask Senator Toomey to support S.42 today.

Our oped in the Pennsylvania Capital-Star:

Our elected officials have failed to lead, instead choosing inaction and caving in to a greedy gun lobby that does all it can to ensure that nothing changes.

But could the pattern change? Could we do what New Zealand has done? Could we take action while we mourn? Could we honor the victims and survivors of so much gun violence with meaningful action?
