Standing Together For Gun Safety

Standing Together for Gun Safety

We are tired of watching gun violence cut short the lives of students and educators.  Elected officials must take action NOW.

We’re calling on MEA members to take the following steps immediately:

1) Sign this petition calling for immediate action by the Legislature on gun safety legislation – and let us know what additional steps you’d be willing to take next.

2) Contact your lawmakers and the chairs of committees where gun safety legislation is languishing and call for action.
