From the Executive Director

Hello and welcome to our March Newsletter.

The Campaign wishes to first acknowledge the brave people of Ukraine in their courageous fight against the ruthless Russian dictator. Please consider donating funds and/or goods for Ukrainians in need (suggestions below).

Here in the US, gun violence continues to mount a deadly toll with little support coming from Washington, DC. One way you can counter that apathy is by urging your members of Congress to support Ethan’s Law – legislation requiring safe gun storage in homes where children are present (see action section below).

Our fights in the states opposing guns on campus are proceeding fairly well thanks to the support from people like you and other stakeholders on the ground. Over the last few months, The Campaign has been most active in Arizona urging community members and education stakeholders to contact their legislators, while also providing fact sheets and other important materials to legislators, educators & lobbyists. Bills involving guns on campus are still pending in these other states: Florida, Missouri, Oklahoma and West Virginia. While prospects appear good that we will defeat bills in all of these states in 2022, nothing is over until legislatures adjourn.

Please visit the Action Center below and click the link for your respective state.

In Georgia, The Campaign is fighting alongside other groups in opposition to legislation allowing almost anyone to carry a concealed handgun – WITHOUT A PERMIT. The bill has passed the Georgia State Senate and is on the floor in the State House. Please take action below.

March is also Women’s History Month and presents an opportunity to talk about some of important people and their contributions to our society. Look for our social media posts coming soon.

Finally, thank you for taking action when we ask and for supporting The Campaign with your gifts. Your donations make the difference and allow this work to continue, touching even more lives with our successes.

Please also consider going the next mile with us by making a sustaining gift of support today as a Campaigner.

Thanks for all you do!

Take Action In These States

Arizona Residents:

Tell Your State Legislators:

“No Guns On Campus”

Here’s the latest – SB 1123 & HB 2447 would change current policies by forcing colleges & universities to allow the carrying of loaded, concealed handguns on campus.

Right now, both bills are on their respective House floors where they could sit or be voted on at any moment. We need Arizonans to continue to message their legislators in opposition to these bills.

Please Take Action Today: Say No To SB 1123 / HB 2447

Keep guns off AZ campuses by contacting your Arizona State Legislators today.

Stay tuned for updates on these bills.

Georgia – Stop Permitless Carry

Legislation to remove the permit requirement for concealed handguns has passed in the State Senate and is on the verge of passing in the House.

Georgia already allows guns on campus, so removing the permitting requirement will further endanger public safety – especially at colleges & universities.

Please take action today by contacting your House member and be at the ready for our veto campaign to come.

HR 748, Ethan’s Law is a lifesaving policy in honor of Ethan Song, a 15-year-old who died after unintentionally shooting himself with a gun that had been left in a cardboard box at his friend’s home. Your help is needed to garner more co-sponsors for this vital legislation.
