Dear MoveOn member,
On Saturday, students across the country led the largest marches against gun violence in history in an awesome display of people-power—and tens of thousands of MoveOn members joined the March for Our Lives actions that demanded politicians protect our kids and our communities, not the NRA.
Thanks to the donations of MoveOn members, MoveOn also contributed in another way to this historic action—launching billboards and airplane banners around the country to pressure Republicans who day after day do the bidding of the NRA.
Here's one of the billboards in Chicago, asking Republican Representative Pete Roskam, "How many dead kids until you say no to the NRA?"
People of all walks of life are seeing the billboards and sharing images of them on social media—and we're continuing to drive calls and tweets to corporate America and Congress to cut ties with the NRA.
But we're not stopping there. Just last week, MoveOn contributed $100,000 to organizations led by people of color who are fighting gun violence around the country, including local organizations like Urban Peace Movement in Oakland and Power U Center for Social Change in Miami and national groups like Black Youth Project and Community Justice Reform Coalition.
If we can raise another $100,000, we'll launch more billboards like these in another 10 districts between now and the April 20 student-led protests, to continue putting pressure on the GOP to break the NRA's stranglehold on American politics. Can you chip in $3 now to help us meet our goal?
Thanks for all you do.
–Emma, Jadzia, Nick, Scott, and the rest of the team
P.S. If you took photos during this weekend's actions, share them with us by emailing them to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll share them over social media to continue to amplify the impact of this weekend's historic events.
P.P.S. In a few cities, the billboard companies wouldn't accept our message—so we found other ways to get the word out! We hired airplanes to fly banners, including this one flying over Dana Rohrabacher's district in Southern California!
Want to support our work? The MoveOn community will work every moment, day by day and year by year, to resist Trump's agenda, contain the damage, defeat hate with love, and begin the process of swinging the nation's pendulum back toward sanity, decency, and the kind of future that we must never give up on. And to do it we need your support, now more than ever. Will you stand with us?
