#TakeAction Tuesday: As many of you know, there are several national (and International) actions being planned to respond to the epidemic of gun violence in our country. All three of the announced major actions are being led by youth, and we’re proud to support and encourage participation in all three.
On March 14, Women's March Youth EMPOWER is planning a National School Walkout. More info here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1767175080245694/
On March 24, the survivors of Parkland, FL and youth nationwide are planning The March For Our Lives in Washington, DC and in cities around the country. More info here: https://www.marchforourlives.com/
On April 20, students around the country are planning #NationalSchoolWalkout. More info here: https://www.facebook.com/nationalhighschoolwalkout/
In addition to these days of action in the weeks and months ahead, we ask all of our members to commit TODAY to taking decisive and consistent action to #EndGunViolence. Here are six things you can do:
Voting in the 2018 Midterm Elections is extremely important. As the first major elections held since President Trump took office in January 2017, these midterms are the nation's first opportunity to hold a mass referendum on the Trump administration, making it all the more important to have your vote counted. The results of this year’s midterm elections will be enormously important — not just in shaping the future of Donald Trump’s presidency, but in shaping the American political landscape for a great many years to come.
Even though Democrats netted two seats in the Senate last year, Republicans hold a majority with 51, nine away from a filibuster-proof margin. Local and state elections matter! These elections have more impact and influence over citizen’s everyday lives than one may think. Many of the state legislators elected on November 6, 2018 will draw the congressional and legislative redistricting lines after the 2020 census. Therefore, voting this year may be one of the most important things you do this year!
