Eleven years ago today, a gunman opened fire on the campus of #VirginiaTech, killing 32 students and educators and injuring over a dozen more.⠀
In honor of the victims of Virginia Tech and all Americans killed or injured by gun violence, we strive for stronger gun safety laws that will help protect our families, communities, and country from senseless violence. #VTWeRemember

Since the Parkland shooting, states have been taking action where Congress won't. We're so thankful to all the @MomsDemand volunteers and gun safety advocates who have pushed for lifesaving legislation across the country. #EndGunViolence
Martin Luther King Jr. was shot and killed on April 4th, 1968. His activism sparked a movement that changed the world, and taught us that it is always the right time to act.⠀
At the #MarchForOurLives, Yolanda Renee King and other young leaders of the movement to end gun violence honored MLK’s legacy with action. You can take action to end gun violence too: Text MOVEMENT to 644-33. #mlk50
