Thoughts and prayers are not enough! Today is National Day of Action to send #LoveToLasVegas and to demand action to #EndGunViolence.  The House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, Congressman John Lewis and other House Democrats held a press event on the Capitol Building steps in Washington D.C. this morning.

The national gun violence prevention coalition has organized vigils and events across the nation. We encourage you to attend these vigils and events to show your support for the families impacted by gun violence and to demand action for common sense gun violence prevention measures to #EndGunViolence.
