Led by former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and her husband, Navy combat veteran and retired NASA astronaut Captain Mark Kelly, the Vocal Majority Tour is a 14-state nationwide bus tour to encourage the vast number of Americans who support commonsense change to our gun laws to step up, speak out, and be catalysts for change this November. A project of Americans for Responsible Solutions PAC (ARS PAC) – the gun violence prevention organization founded by Congresswoman Giffords and Captain Kelly – The Vocal Majority Tour is travel to communities in battleground states and districts for grassroots events with local leaders, elected officials, and candidates to help ignite the Vocal Majority and elevate gun violence prevention in elections this fall.
Americans for Responsible Solutions PAC (ARS PAC) works to elect candidates at every level of public office who show the political courage to stand up to the gun lobby, are passionate about reducing gun violence in our communities, and who commit to taking action once elected. Since 2013, ARS PAC has supported Champions for Common Sense in key federal, gubernatorial, and state races – and supported the passage of ballot initiatives – in states around the country.
