6 Simple Ways to Take Action on Gun Control

Enough is Enough. If you're like us you may be wanting to make your voice heard on the issue of gun control but no idea where to start. We've put together a simple list of 6 simple things anybody can do to take action to make sure these tragedies come to an end in America. Not one more. 

1. Volunteer & Participate

in gun reform events or protests, like the March for Our Lives event that took place across the country in March. There are also a national and state level groups, focused on preventing gun violence, that have local chapters, here are two examples:

2. Use Social Media

Social media is a powerful tool when used in the correct way. Use your voice on social media to support campaigns such as the #NotOneMore movement. Or, tweet at your local politicians to demand policy changes.

3. Donate

to gun reform groups that are taking action. Everytown is one of the most notable groups taking action on gun violence, but there is also the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence (CSGV), Sandy Hook Promise, and Moms Demand Action just to name a few. 
You can even sign up for Amazon Smile so that a portion of every purchase you make goes to the gun reform organization you support!

4. Contact Elected Officials

to demand action, and pressure them them to STOP taking money from the NRA. And better yet - support those politicians running on platforms that align with your beliefs on gun control.
Need to know who represents you in the U.S. Congress? Here you go.

It's important to know the facts and the details about what you're fighting so hard for. All of the links above provide useful and relevant information to support you during your demand for change. Arm yourself with the facts! Here's a great example:

6. Look the Part 

There are some great shirts you can buy to show your support for the gun control movement. Of course, our personal favorite is the Kind Cotton 'Enough.' Tee. Make a statement and look great doing it in this super soft ladies triblend tee.
