In the past five years, we’ve defeated hundreds of bad gun lobby bills, like guns in K-12 schools, guns on college campuses, permitless carry, and expanding Stand Your Ground.

And we’ve passed good bills, like strengthening background check laws in eight states; and strengthening domestic violence laws in 25 states to keep guns away from domestic abusers. Passing Red Flag Laws, and laws that enhance the NICS system.

In the recent November elections, eight out of eight of the candidates MomsDemand endorsed won their races. Thirteen of our volunteers ran in electoral races across the country and nine of them won – and hundreds more plan to run in upcoming elections.

We’ve been successful because we’re relentless. Every time guns are discussed in a statehouse or in Congress, we’re in the audience showing lawmakers we’re watching them. And we give our business only to companies with policies that keep our families and communities safe.

MomsDemand is the grassroots arm of Everytown. We have a chapter in every state, 70,000+ active volunteers, and more than 4 million supporters. We are the David to the NRA‘s Goliath, and we will win. Join us.
