Use the power of Valentine’s Day to stand up for kids!
Make a valentine to urge Congress to move forward gun violence prevention policies.
What if we could use the power of Valentine’s Day to stand up for kids and get Congress to move gun violence prevention policies forward?
It turns out, we (you) can!
The time is now. Valentine’s Day is the two-month anniversary of the Sandy Hook Elementary school tragedy where 20 young children were gunned down in their classrooms.  The CDC reports that more than 30 people are murdered by guns every day in the United States, which means that in the last two months alone, our country has lost another 1,200 lives to gun violence, including brothers, sisters, husbands, wives, sons, daughters and other loved ones.

That’s right, this year we’re getting crafty (with a nifty high-tech edge) for Congress to send an important message.
With our online Valentine Creation Station, in less than one minute you can create a valentine for your Congressperson, which we will deliver in D.C. on Valentine’s Day. That’s right: After the valentines are made online, we’ll personally print and deliver your valentine along with thousands of others to our Senator and Representatives offices in Washington, D.C., making this Valentine’s Day a truly powerful holiday. By filling the halls of Congress with your “homemade” valentines, we’ll make sure our leaders can’t forget about the lives lost and Sandy Hook.
And, we’ll remind Congress what kids really need for Valentine’s Day this year: Safe communities, where they can grow and thrive without fear from gun violence.
Feel free to share the tool with your kids and friends by forwarding this email now: We need everyone’s help to fill the halls of Congress with valentines!
