Dear Inwood MoveOn member,
Every time something like the tragic shootings in Newtown, CT, happens, there's a quick, huge outcry for things to change. The problem is that, almost every time, the momentum peters out, the call to action goes silent, and nothing changes.
This time, let's do something different. Let's make a promise to keep working together and not let the status quo win again. If we each make a promise now, and keep taking action until we get the change we want, we can change our gun laws and our gun culture.
So can you step up? Commit today to take action at least once per month against gun violence in your community. That could mean calling Congress or President Obama, attending a local organizing meeting, or signing and sharing a petition.
Whatever you choose, commit to doing something. Your community as well as the families of the 34 people who die every day to gun violence1 need you to act now and keep on acting.
You'll be joining thousands of other Americans who are also promising to keep pushing for change.
Thanks for all you do.
–Garlin, Milan, Mariana, Elena, and the rest of the team
P.S. Tonight, people from all over the country will get on the phone to share their commitment to ending gun violence and make plans for action in early January and beyond. Sign up join tonight's call and get started.
