Ban Assault Weapons Rally Sept. 25

Dear friends,

Lift Every Voice Oregon has reserved the Capitol Building Steps in Salem from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Tuesday, September 25. 

JOIN US for a rally to call for a reduction in assault weapons and large-capacity magazines in Oregon.

Scheduled speakers include Lift Every Voice Oregon, Ceasefire Oregon, Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon and many others.

Students are back in school, but their voices will be heard. We will bring hundreds of postcards that students throughout Oregon have signed, urging our legislators to continue to take steps in this legislative year to pass laws that will reduce gun violence in our state.

Music is an integral part of every freedom movement, and we will have some of the best musicians on the steps during the rally.

Come and join with us. Hear the inspiring speakers. Get training and meet with your legislators after the rally to tell them that we need safer schools and safer communities for all Oregonians.

Be sure and bring a lunch for the Capitol Steps Rally as you network with others from around the state.

Invite your legislators to join us on the steps for all or part of the Rally.

Schedule your visit with your legislators either before or after the Rally to encourage them to seek to ban the sale of assault weapons and large-capacity magazines during the 2019 Legislative Session.  Click this link to find your legislators:  https://www.oregonlegislature.gov/findyourlegislator/leg-districts.html
