We’re really proud of all the work we do together but today we wanted to share a simple message from some of our bravest and best advocates.

We are privileged to work with many brave  families who have lost children, spouses and even been victims of gun violence themselves. These women and men have told their stories at vigils, at rallies and in messages to voters, legislators and even the governor.

All of their stories are unique. But they are unified by a simple message and purpose: to protect other families from the horror and pain they are suffering.

This is why we do the work we do. Every email, every rally, every letter to the editor is in service of this goal.

It’s important to remember when we talk about expanding background checks or keeping guns away from schools, we are talking about real people and real lives. And we are doing everything we can to help them keep other families safe from the pain they know too well.

Can you contribute $25, $50, $100 or even $250 today and help us continue to work together to stop gun violence?
