Yes on Two New Bills

As progressive people, we aren’t just here to stop bad ideas. We want to promote the good ones as well. Take five minutes out of your week to call Congress and let them know you support two new bills. The Ghost Guns are Guns Act (HR 1278), which requires firearm assembly kits to be considered to be firearms, and the This Land is Our Land Act (HR 739), which prohibits the construction of new border barriers, including walls or fences, on certain Federal land (like tribal reservations), and for other purposes. Let’s support these causes. Here’s how:

STEP ONE:
Use this link to the contact information for your representative and two senators.

STEP TWO:
Use the phone script or form email below to contact your officials. Feel free to modify the message as you see fit. As a tip a PHONE CALL IS MORE LIKELY TO GET YOUR VOICE HEARD AND COUNTED THAN AN EMAIL, but an email is better than nothing!
