We are thrilled to announce that Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America and Mayors Against Illegal Guns are joining forces to launch our most ambitious effort yet: Everytown for Gun Safety.
Everytown is a movement of moms, teachers, survivors, gun owners, mayors, faith leaders, law enforcement officials and other responsible citizens who believe we can do much more to keep our families and communities safe from gun violence. For the first time in history, Americans from all walks of life will mobilize to create a counterweight to the gun lobby and fight for common-sense gun laws at the federal, state and local level.
Everytown will address issues like background checks, domestic violence, suicide prevention and safe storage of guns: the first video from Everytown shows why every parent needs to be concerned about safe storage. Moms Demand Action is proud to be a partner and driving force behind in this movement. To learn more, visit Everytown.org.
Mother’s Dream Quilt Project
Every mother dreams of a happy future for her children. Unfortunately, too many American mothers see that dream shattered by gun violence—which has become part of the very fabric of our country. Moms Demand Action has created The Mother’s Dream Quilt Project to symbolize the human toll of gun violence in America, and mothers’ shared dream of a country where all our children will be safe.
These are real, common-sense policies — and they’re going to make Facebook safer for all users.
Facebook’s plan includes several practical measures to drastically reduce the chances of illegal gun sales on its platform, such as letting users report suspicious gun posts, deleting posts that describe illegal sales and requiring owners of gun-sales related pages to acknowledge the laws that apply to them.
This victory marks a huge step forward in the history of our movement — and it all took shape in less than a month, thanks to you!
