Dear 5849376,

No More Silence

In the year since the massacre at Newtown, the gun lobby has successfully killed a universal background checks bill in the Senate, and recalled two politicians in Colorado who helped pass new gun violence legislation.

But when good people speak out, change can happen. That's how 21 states enacted stronger gun laws, an NRA F-rated candidate won the governorship in Virginia, and Americans began accepting that the NRA is a right-wing fringe organization owned by gun manufacturers.1

That's why our friends at Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America and Mayors Against Illegal Guns are organizing vigils across the country to encourage Americans to speak out to end gun violence.

Can you be there tomorrow to show solidarity with the families of Newtown victims, and support for renewed action to end gun violence in America? More information is below:

What: No More Silence: A Call for Remembrance and Resolve
When: Saturday, December 14, 2013 at 11:00 AM
Where: Ding' Darling Shelter House in Des Moines, IA 50313

The event program will culminate in a moment of No More Silence when participants will ring bells to remember the victims, and to show their resolve to never be silent again about gun violence. Everyone is welcome to bring their own bells, if they have them, but organizers have asked that attendees not bring any political or partisan signs.

Thank you for taking action.
