Pennsylvania participated in today’s National Day of Action for Gun Violence Prevention. Congressmen Brendan Boyle and Bob Brady joined us at Philadelphia’s City Hall along with community stakeholders and other partners to thank the public who supported them through last week’s historic sit-in and to let them know that the work will continue until the House votes on common-sense gun violence prevention policies.

Today’s actions show that leaders in Washington D.C. and Harrisburg are beginning to see the power of communities who are tired of living with gun violence. Stay tuned for developments.
