Mr. President, do more than point to survivors tonight. Demand a Plan to End Gun Violence!



Demand a Plan

More than 120 survivors of gun violence and family members of victims are arriving in Washington, DC today. We're here to meet face-to-face with our members of Congress and share our personal stories.
Call Now

The goal is simple: We want Congress to fix our broken gun laws and save lives. No one else should have to go through the pain and heartbreak we've experienced -- in Newtown, Aurora, Oak Creek, Tucson, Virginia Tech and in cities and towns across the entire country.

Elected officials listen to their constituents -- that's why we're here. But our voices are not enough! Your members of Congress need to hear from you!

At the same time we're sitting down to talk to Senators and Representatives, we need you to flood their offices with calls in support of gun reform.

Please make a call RIGHT NOW and tell your members of Congress to support common sense reforms to end gun violence.

While we're here in Washington, we're also going to hand deliver the petition you signed directly to your members of Congress -- more than 1.2 million signatures from all 50 states to Demand A Plan to end gun violence.

But we have to keep the pressure on.

The next few days are going to be crucial to changing our gun laws. The NRA sent an action alert to their members on Friday opposing background checks for all gun sales. We need to make sure Congress hears our voices in this debate.

I hope you'll support our face-to-face meetings in Washington by making a call to your member of Congress TODAY:

Thank you for supporting this historic effort to end gun violence,

To Kneel [a #Poem]

To Kneel 

(c) Rabbi Menachem Creditorfor Landingham & Kaepernick, our angels in the wings
Sometimes, it isn't about nuance.
Sometimes it just comes down to facing the storm,
calling God out,
standing at the center of a whirlwind
holding your ground.

No cathedral is immune to agony,
no soul impervious to life itself no nation purely noble.
If it were any other way,
there would be no need for cathedrals
in the first place.

Kneel,  stand,  sit,  rise up.

To kneel is
to submit  to lower oneself  to step down  to pause.
To kneel is to call attention  to touch the Earth's face to listen to those  whose blood saturates  the very roots of our story.
To kneel is to step aside  to step outside  to invite others to come closer  to remember.
To kneel is not to stand not to stand not to stand idly by.
Speak your truth,
God damn it.

That's what God wants most of all.
