WASHINGTON — Today, Everytown for Gun Safety Action Fund announced its endorsement of Gabe Amo for the Special Election in Rhode Island’s 1st Congressional District.
“Gabe Amo is a proven leader who has a bone-deep understanding of the critical need to pass common sense, life-saving gun safety legislation,” said John Feinblatt, President of Everytown for Gun Safety. “During his time in the White House, he was the first to reach out to local officials after mass shootings, experiences that will fuel his work to prevent future tragedies. Everytown is proud to endorse Gabe Amo for Rhode Island’s 1st Congressional District Special Election. ”
“We are immensely proud to endorse Gabe Amo, who has demonstrated in his roles both in Rhode Island and at the White House that he is committed to creating safer communities,” said Angela Ferrell-Zabala, executive director of Moms Demand Action. “As gun violence continues to disproportionately harm Black and brown communities, Gabe would be the first person of color to represent Rhode Island in Congress. I’m confident that if elected, Gabe will continue to prioritize the safety of Rhode Islanders, and all Americans, by championing common sense gun safety laws that will help build healthier communities and save lives.”
