|It seems like we can’t go a week without news of another mass shooting in America. Each time, the stories we hear are both shocking and yet familiar. Meanwhile, the right-wing Supreme Court seems hell-bent on making it easier for people to own military-style weapons.
Well, if you’re as angry about all this as I am, here’s what you can do right now to make Oregon safer for all of us:
Lift Every Voice is a grassroots organization right here in Oregon working to put a gun safety measure on the ballot for this fall’s election. This isn’t a big professional campaign – it’s an all-volunteer effort spurred by ordinary Oregonians who are fed up with gun violence and fighting for change. Against all odds, their petition is on the cusp of qualifying for the November election. They will officially submit their signatures this Friday. They have done incredible work and now they need our help. If you want to be part of this grassroots effort to significantly improve gun safety in Oregon – and I certainly hope you will – please donate $16 now.
