This is just some of what we’ve been doing in our all-out effort to elect the strongest gun safety ticket in American history.
Registering thousands of voters
Millions of Americans have turned or will turn 18 this year in time for the general election. That’s why we’re working so hard to register thousands of voters in advance of Election Day—with a focus on youth. Our Students Demand Action and Moms Demand Action volunteers are using social media, text messaging, peer-to-peer tools, and more to tell their friends, family, neighbors, and peers to register to vote and help elect Gun Sense Candidates.
Getting out the vote in key states
Not only are we telling those in our own networks to vote, but we’re also supporting Gun Sense Candidates around the country by phonebanking and texting key states. Through the Gun Sense Action Network, our volunteers are providing information on upcoming elections, voter registration info, and other information to get out the vote. One conversation with another person can make all the difference.
Attending virtual events and showing up on social media
To safely organize this year, our volunteers are meeting and doing the work online. While you might not be seeing our volunteers’ signature red shirts in person, they’re hard to miss on social media. You can find our volunteers all over Twitter, showing their support for Gun Sense Candidates, sharing voter resources, and more—just search the hashtag #MomsAreEverywhere to get inspired.
Preparing and inspiring our volunteer leaders to do the work
Thousands of volunteer leaders gathered online in August for our annual training summit, Gun Sense University. Volunteer leaders from around the country organized, learned how to best support their communities and partners, and prepared themselves with the skills and tools they need to elect Gun Sense Candidates. With an inspiring set of speakers, like Jill Biden and Nancy Pelosi, our volunteers are energized and inspired to do the work.
