Gun Safety Weekly

We're going to the Women's March. Gun violence is a women's issue. Here's why:
  • American women are 16 times more likely to be killed with a gun than in other high-income countries
  • In an average month, 50 women are shot to death by a current or former partner in the United States
  • Approximately 4.5 million American women have been threatened with guns, and guns are the weapon of choice in domestic violence murders
That's why next weekend, hundreds of Everytown and Moms Demand Action volunteers are converging on Washington, D.C. to join the Women's March.

We're marching because the NRA's agenda is a direct threat to women everywhere. Their leadership has a history of misogyny -- from describing women as "b*tches" and "c*nts" to downplaying rape [1] -- and their policies make it easy for domestic abusers to get their hands on guns. And now that they've spent millions on Trump's election, they're emboldened to push their deadly agenda more than ever.
Even if you can't march with us, you can still fight back against the NRA's agenda and speak out about gun violence against women. 

Here's how:
Show your solidarity with the marchers and help raise awareness with our Women's March pins. Proceeds go to our fight to prevent gun violence against women.
