Gun Violence Prevention

Tragically, each day ninety-one people in America are killed by guns. Too many families in our nation bare the painful stories of loved ones lost to gun violence and this heartbreak ripples through our communities with each new gun death.

Voting Rights

Voting rights are essential to who we are as Americans, to the cause of equality, and to the strength of our democracy.
