May 14, 2014 In the News
It all begins Monday, June 2
It’s been nearly a year and a half since the horrific shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary — and unfortunately, there has been nearly one school shooting per week since then.
Despite the enormity of that event and the daily incidents of gun violence, the politicians in Olympia and Washington, D.C. have failed to take real action to reduce gun violence. But we stepped up and this November, Washington voters will vote on a simple, commonsense reform that will make us all safer.
To defeat the gun lobby’s massive political money machine, we’re going to need to organize neighbor to neighbor, street by street, and workplace by workplace.
Now is the time to kick off our campaign to Vote Yes on 594 — won’t you join us on Monday, June 2nd?
We’re extremely honored that Carlee Soto, whose sister Victoria was killed protecting her students at Sandy Hook, has agreed to join us and help us begin this very important campaign, and share her inspiring story.
We can defeat the gun lobby.
We will make Washington safer for all our families.
I hope you can join us — here’s the info:
Monday, June 2nd at 12:00 p.m.
The Westin Hotel
1900 5th Ave., Seattle
A donation will be requested during the program.
For more information or to RSVP, contact Tessa McClellan at 206.328.2969 or [email protected]
Thank you for everything so far — I look forward to working with you as we enter this new phase of the campaign.
Talk to you soon,
WA Alliance for Gun Responsibility
