Back moms and kids up when they tell lawmakers, "Listen to moms, not the NRA!"

Time is short!  Tomorrow morning, June 3, we're going to Washington, D.C. to urge our U.S. Senators to listen to moms, not the National Rifle Association (NRA)--and we need you to back us up!

The National Rifle Association (NRA) is working hard to derail Dr. Vivek Murthy’s confirmation to the position of U.S. Surgeon General because he, like many other doctors and associations, has said that gun violence is a "health care issue."  To keep this eminently qualified doctor from serving as the nation’s foremost champion of public health for a view held by the entire medical and public health establishment is outrageous!

That's why we are stepping up.  We're dressing up kids and tots in doctor's scrubs, lab coats and stethoscopes to deliver more than 200,000 signatures to U.S. Senate offices on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. to tell them that gun violence IS a public health issue and that the health interests of America's families must be paramount for the choice of a U.S. Surgeon General.

Will you back us up online by sending a quick note right now to let U.S. Senators know that moms and kids are heading their way? Tell them to look out for us, and that they should listen to moms, not the NRA!

Sign Today!

Dear Senator,

I am your constituent and a member of MomsRising. I wanted to let you know that moms and kids are heading your way this Tuesday, June 3, to tell U.S. Senate lawmakers to listen to moms, not the NRA, and to urge them to support Dr. Vivek Murthy as U.S. Surgeon General. The little ones will be dressed up as doctors in honor of the Surgeon General - adorable! Keep an eye out for them, and when you see them, please give them a shout-out and your support.

Thank you.
