Maybe you’ve seen firsthand how gun violence can rip apart a family and a community.
Or maybe you’re concerned by what you see on the news.
Whatever your reason, those in Congress who oppose sensible change need to hear from you: Share your personal story or views on why Congress should act right now to help protect our kids and reduce gun violence.
Your story will inspire others to speak out and show legislators that now is the time.
President Obama said it: “More than a thousand birthdays, graduations, and anniversaries have been stolen from our lives by a bullet from a gun” in just the two months since the tragedy in Newtown.
Each of those families deserves a vote by Congress on commonsense measures to help protect our kids.
But we need to demand it.
It’s easy to share your story or point of view:
1. Provide your basic information. (Please note: For your privacy, we’ll only publish your city and your first name and last initial.)
2. If you have a photo or video you’d like to share, paste a link into that field. You can paste an Instagram or Twitter link, but cannot upload a photo directly.
3. In the final box, compose your personal story or views about reducing gun violence.
4. After you agree to the submission terms, hit the green “Tell Your Story” button. Our staff will review and post your submission.
Please share your story today:
This won’t be easy, but if we can save even one life, it’ll be worth it.
