Gun Violence Prevention

Boomers like to say we’re apathetic. But we’re not. Millennials and Generation Z are paying attention and speaking up. We need champions in government that stand up and reflect our values!

That means not only calling out inaction from the Senate, but thanking champions who’ve acted on gun violence like the crisis it is. Congressman Jerry Nadler (D-NY)—we see you and we appreciate you. Thank you for your leadership on gun violence.

Under the leadership of Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY), the House Judiciary Committee held a markup of three new gun violence prevention bills on its first week back in session. By the end of the day, the Committee had voted to advance all three to the House floor. But that’s not all. Rep. Nadler will convene the Committee once again for a new markup to discuss a bill that would ban assault weapons. We need allies like Rep. Nadler in this fight—lawmakers who can translate the solutions we have developed into policy that will make a difference. That means not only calling out inaction from the Senate, but thanking champions who’ve acted on gun violence like the crisis it is. Congressman Jerry Nadler (D-NY)—we see you and we appreciate you. Thank you for your leadership on gun violence.

For a country that has long been unwilling to take bold action on gun violence prevention, these past few weeks have finally felt like a step in the right direction. Those who have led this movement for decades, both in our own communities and on the national stage, have felt a renewed sense of optimism that the time and energy that activists have poured into making this country safer may actually produce change. Let’s keep pushing for more.

Take action by signing an advocate thank-you letter to Rep. Nadler, and encourage Congress to do more on gun violence!
