No More Silence: Marking the Anniversary of the Newtown Tragedy
Saturday, December 14 marks one year since the tragic shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Moms Demand Action will commemorate the anniversary with No More Silence, a campaign to honor the victims and show our resolve never to be silent again about gun violence. The campaign will include a week of action culminating on December 14, with events in more than 35 states. Each event will include a communal ringing of bells—a moment of No More Silence—to remember the victims and to show that the time for silence is over.
Tell Members of Congress Thanks,
or Send them a Turkey
As we prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving 2013, we want to take a moment to thank the members of Congress who’ve stood up for gun sense this year. But we also want to remind those who haven’t supported common-sense laws, such as expanded background checks, that moms are watching.
While you’re getting ready for your holiday feast, take a moment to tell legislators who’ve done the right thing that you’re grateful for their gun sense. For those who haven’t? Tell them: Don’t Be a Turkey!
Tell Staples: Guns & Crayons Don’t Mix
A recent shooting in a North Carolina Staples showed very clearly that the presence of guns poses a danger to shoppers and employees. We’re asking Staples to take a stand for gun sense and prohibit firearms from all their stores nationwide. We need your help. Sign our petition today and learn about other ways you can help bring gun sense to Staples.
Thank You, Starbucks, for Giving Us Coffee with Gun Sense
Moms Demand Action congratulates Starbucks on its decision to keep weapons out of its stores. SInce July, Moms Demand Action members around the country have been asking Starbucks to change its policy, which had allowed patrons to carry loaded firearms into Starbucks stores in states that allow open and concealed carry. We are grateful to Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz for stating unequivocally, “Everyone is welcome in our stores, but weapons are not.”
