Are you an educator with gun sense?
We know that one of the NRA’s top priorities is forcing schools—especially colleges and universities—to allow guns on campus and in school classrooms. Moms Demand Action has been successful in defeating a majority of state bills that would have forced guns into schools and campuses, but if we’re going to keep winning, we need America’s educators to join the fight. Whether you are a teacher, an administrator, a college professor, a dean, a coach, or an education professional, help us keep schools and campuses safe from gun violence.
Help us fight back
The NRA spent 30 million dollars to elect Donald Trump and they will expect to get what they paid for. Make no mistake: Moms will not allow the outcome of one election to deter us. It’s up to us to stand between the president-elect and the NRA’s vision of more guns for more people. That’s why we need your help to make sure we’re prepared to fight back on day one of Trump’s presidency
A message from Shannon on our 4 year anniversary
Four years ago today, a mom of five in Indianapolis started a Facebook page to begin a conversation about how to end senseless deaths and injuries by gun violence. That online conversation blossomed into an offline movement. Today, Moms Demand Action boasts 3 million supporters and a chapter in every state.
Shop our “Keep Going” collection
Our dedicated volunteers coined the hashtag #KeepGoing to celebrate our victories, and to encourage each other to keep fighting to end gun violence in America. Our movement has faced setbacks before — but each time we’ve fallen, we’ve gotten back up even stronger. Now is more important than ever before for us to keep going. All proceeds go towards our fight to defend our gun laws and save lives.

Be SMART for kids
When children get a hold of unsecured guns, the results can be tragic. Every 36 hours, a child unintentionally fires a gun and kills or injures himself or someone else. And that doesn’t include the number of suicides–and even some homicides–that occur when kids have access to unsecured guns. The Be SMART campaign asks parents and all responsible adults to prevent these tragedies by following five simple steps: Secure guns in homes and vehicles; Model responsible behavior around guns; Ask about the presence of guns in other homes; Recognize the risks of teen suicide; and Tell your peers to Be SMART. Since 2015, Moms Demand Action volunteers have spreading the message about responsible storage in their communities.
How did your Senators vote on common-sense gun laws?
After the deadliest mass shooting in American history, lawmakers voted to block efforts to pass common-sense gun laws — again.
But some lawmakers voted the right way, and took a brave stand for life-saving reforms. See how your senator voted, and then call their offices to tell them how you feel about their decision.
Tell Congress: Disarm hate. Take action NOW.
49 people were killed and over 50 injured during the worst mass shooting in U.S. history at a gay nightclub in Orlando. It was an attack on the LGBT community, an act of hate carried out with a gun. Hatred comes in many different forms. But there’s no reason why those filled with hate should have a gun.
Americans are dying. Now is the time to demand Congress take action to prevent gun violence in America.
Learn More About the Mother’s Dream Quilt Project
Every mother dreams that her child will grow up safe, healthy and happy. Unfortunately, too many American mothers see their dreams for their children shattered by gun violence.
Moms Demand Action has created The Mother’s Dream Quilt Project to symbolize the human toll of gun violence in America, as well as mothers’ shared commitment to making our country safer for our children.
We are creating a series of quilts from fabric donated by mothers across the country. Every block in every quilt uses the uniform quilting pattern known as “Mother’s Dream.” Each quilt also contains at least one block composed of meaningful fabric from a victim or survivor of gun violence. Blocks representing victims and survivors are surrounded by quilt blocks submitted by mothers who share in our collective sadness over too many lives shattered by gun violence.
The fully assembled quilts show how gun violence has become part of the fabric of America, but also show the strength, power and beauty of moms joining together.
These Shootings are #NotAnAccident
The U.S. has one of the highest reported rates of unintentional child gun deaths in the world. But these tragedies aren’t accidents — they are preventable. Our #NotAnAccident index reveals the scope of this uniquely American problem.
