A CALL TO ACTION – Use the simple link below to write to your legislators to support bills that improve gun safety and responsibility. PLEASE ACT NOW as bills are still being introduced and considered for action. The gun lobby remains strong and wily and we must show our legislators we will, with determination, continue to promote responsible gun ownership.  Have your voice heard: http://action.wagunresponsibility.org/page/speakout/gagv-stronger-gun-laws

Our vision is to seek a safer world for our grandchildren and for theirs.

Welcome to a growing grassroots organization. We came together after the terrible tragedy in Newtown. We are grandmothers. We are women who want to use our voices in a civil conversation about gun safety, about ending gun violence in our towns, cities, and nation. Founded in Seattle, we encourage other grandmothers across the country to come together and join us. We remember that it is women who spark so much positive social change, whose determination to stand up can change a culture.
