• Call your senators today

    The Senate is expected to vote today on expanding background checks for gun sales—a measure that would go a long way toward reducing gun violence and making our communities safer. Our senators are debating right now, and we expect the vote to be very close—now is the time to speak up.

    Can you pick up the phone right now and call the Capitol switchboard at 202-224-3121?

    It only takes a few minutes of your time to make your voice heard. Then, make sure you report back on how it went.

    Make sure to tell your senator where you're from. And if you'd like, let them know your reason for taking action on gun violence. Maybe you have a friend or a family member who's been affected by gun violence, or maybe you were moved to stand up after the shooting in Newtown, or Tucson, or Virginia Tech. Whatever your reason, your passion will come through and that will make a difference.

    These are common-sense reforms that will actually save lives and make our communities safer. If we want the Senate to pass a bill to reduce gun violence, we have to speak up—the special-interest groups on the other side are already well represented in this debate.

    Thanks for being a part of this.

    Now start calling.
