Do I need to be a mom to join?
Nope! Moms Demand Action is for every American who wants a future free of gun violence. Much like Mothers Against Drunk Driving, we were founded by mothers, but have many volunteers and volunteer leaders who are dads or Americans who don’t have children.
What is Everytown for Gun Safety?
Everytown is a movement of more than 6 million Americans working together to end gun violence and build safer communities. Moms Demand Action, along with Mayors Against Illegal Guns, and Students Demand Action are all part of Everytown.
Moms Demand Action is the grassroots arm of Everytown. We are the volunteers who show up and get things done. We organize events, we make phone calls, we sign petitions, we go to marches – we show up. We call on state and national lawmakers to enact common-sense gun laws that will protect our kids and encourage local businesses to help us create a culture of responsible gun ownership. We call on corporate leaders and influencers to create and demand change. We’re the ones in the red shirts.
