I’ve spent the last couple of weeks closely following the efforts of the Parkland students to push for sensible gun control â€“ their ability to turn their grief into civic action is so inspiring! I’m a longtime supporter of sensible gun control legislation, and as a mother of two young children I feel strongly about keeping kids and teachers safe at school (and also at the movies, at concerts, and houses of worship). If you’re looking for ways to get involved, please consider joining your local chapter of Moms Demand Action (even if you aren’t a mom!) and get in touch with your local representatives to demand sensible gun control. Katie from Idlewild Co. made these rainbow postcards for writing to her local elected officials in Florida, and I asked her if she’d make them available to everyone here! You can download the postcards through the links below, and there’s also a version for sending a postcard of support to the Parkland students!
You can also download the Dear Senator and Dear Representative postcards that Allie Hasson made for us back in October after the Las Vegas massacre. To make the postcards, you can print them out on your home computer, or use an online postcard service like Staples or Moo (or your local favorite print shop!). Please note: if you’re writing to your elected representative, you MUST include your return address so they know you are a constituent â€“ otherwise staffers will throw them out.
And if you’re planning to participate in the March for our Lives on March 24, Anne Robin is offering t-shirts with the words Protect Kids, Not Guns in her beautiful calligraphy in both adult and kid sizes. 100% of proceeds go towards Everytown for Gun Safety. They’ll be available for pre-sale through Sunday only, so place your orders now!
