State PTA Demands Action to End Gun Violence

March14_CALLOUT
On March 14, students across the country are planning to “walk out” to make their voices heard. California State PTA is asking for your help to “call out” our federal legislators and demand action.

Stand together with the voices of students and call your federal legislators on March 14 to demand stronger gun-violence prevention legislation including:

    Prohibiting the sale and possession of assault weapons including automatic and semi-automatic weapons
    Mandatory background checks
    Waiting periods for all firearm purchases.

Take Action – Includes a script and phone numbers for our federal legislators
