Happy holidays, Democratic House Majority PAC


Before you head out for the holidays, we just wanted to send you a note
thanking you for all you’ve done this year to help stop the Tea Party.
Your support has been nothing short of amazing.

Here’s a quick card we put together highlighting all the times the Tea Party of “NO” has stood in the way in the last year. Click here to see the graphic and then share it on Facebook. Hope you enjoy it!

From all of us at House Majority PAC, we hope you have a wonderful holiday season spent with friends and family.


Happy holidays,

Chuck

Shannon Watts, Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America


One year ago, I wasn’t an activist of any kind. I was a stay at home mom of five children in a suburb of Indianapolis.
But in the wake of the mass shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, I went online and started a Facebook group for moms who wanted to get involved.
I’m still amazed at the response, and one year later we’ve grown to include chapters in all 50 states and are widely recognized as the nation’s leading grassroots organization working on gun violence prevention.
See what our movement looks like one year later by watching this video, and join us by liking Moms Demand Action on Facebook:

We’re getting stronger, and we’re expanding in states and at the local level so we can be even more involved as this fight moves to city and state legislatures around the country. Gun violence is a problem that won’t be solved until we get laws on the books that will protect all communities, and we’re going to be calling on grassroots supporters like you to join forces with us and solve this problem.
Someday, when we look back at this year, we will remember it as the moment that launched a movement that changed everything — or the time we had real progress within our reach, but lacked the strength to seize it.
Please watch this video, share it with your friends and family, and like us on Facebook:

Thanks, and get ready for an exciting year ahead,

NEWTOWN


My mom, Dawn Hochsprung, was the principal at Sandy Hook Elementary School.  She was murdered almost a year ago today, and there’s nothing anyone can do to bring her back.As painful as this anniversary is, I’m also grateful to have joined this movement of millions of Americans like you who are standing up for common-sense gun laws.  And I want to take a moment to thank you for your commitment to passing stronger gun laws so others don’t have to experience what my family has been through.Today, I’m changing my profile picture to the image below. It’s a show of solidarity with supporters around the country, and it will remind our friends and families that we’re serious about making meaningful changes to our nation’s broken gun laws.Please join me, and stand with supporters around the country by updating your profile picture on Facebook and Twitter:

It’s because of people like you that we’ve seen so much progress on this issue in the last year.  But this fight isn’t over, and changing your Facebook photo is a simple way to show your friends and family that you’re in it for the long haul.

Change your profile photo —  for the 26 children and educators, including my mom, who were killed one year ago, and for the 33 Americans who are murdered with guns every single day:

And if you ever feel disheartened by the politics in Washington around this issue, think of my mom and all the people we’re doing this for. We can’t give up before we pass the common-sense laws that will make us all safer.

Thank you,

Erica Lafferty
