The PA Senate, not content to focus on finalizing a budget this week, has decided to take up the issue of allowing teachers and other nonsecurity personnel to be armed in our public schools. No one thinks this is a good idea — not teachers, not parents, not students, and not even two joint State Government Task Forces that have studied the issue. In fact, many of the teachers who survived the Sandy Hook shooting sent a letter to our Senators expressing their deep opposition to this proposed policy.
Please email your Senator right now to ask him or her to vote NO on SB 383, a dangerous bill that will Not make our kids safer. They need to hear from you.
Let them know you’re watching and counting on them to do the right thing.
Summer is special here in Wisconsin.
And just like we value these wonderful, long, warm days, spent with friends and family, we value peace and safety in our neighborhoods. Because it means so much to us, we aren’t afraid to speak up for the vision of community we believe in, for the safer Wisconsin all of our families deserve.
We know how important this is to you. That’s why all summer long we will be working relentlessly against dangerous legislative proposals like “permitless carry” that would put our families at risk. And that’s why we’re hoping you’ll show just how important a safer Wisconsin is to you.
>>>Make a donation of $25 or more to support our work this summer, and we’ll send you a lunch tote you can bring with you on every summer adventure.
Over the past few months, thousands of people like you — people from all across Wisconsin — have worked shoulder to shoulder with us: calling, emailing, even testifying to our elected leaders face-to-face to demand our freedom from gun violence.
Our movement is growing stronger every day. You have played a big part in our growth, and we want you to be proud of that.
Donate $25 or more today, and we’ll rush a WAVE lunch tote to you so you can start showing your support for a safer Wisconsin right away.
You are the heart and soul of this movement, and we could not be more grateful to you for your dedicated support of our work and your unwavering commitment to saving lives.

I wanted to make sure you didn’t miss my op-ed in today’s Philadelphia Inquirer.
Last week’s shooting in Alexandria was a tragedy. But if you hoped it would soften the position of some of the gun extremists, you would be wrong. One congressman referred to this and other shootings as “bad side effects of someone not exercising [their] rights properly;” another has proposed a bill that would allow members of congress to be armed basically anywhere.
Will you stand with us against this offensive analysis and these wrong-headed proposals by making a contribution of $25, $50, $100 or $250 today?
Gun violence is the disease, not the side effect. We need to dedicate America’s talent, resources, genius, and sheer people power to curing this problem.
We each have a voice and a vote, and we need to use them. And this is the message we need to send: If you are not part of the solution to the problem of gun violence, you are part of the problem.
Will you be part of the solution? Can you help us change the narrative and fight back? Please make a contribution of $25, $50, $100 or $250 today.
Thank you for taking a stand against gun violence!
