This week #MarchForOurLives hosted a reception in our nation’s capital. The room was filled with victims and survivors of gun violence, organizers of all ages, and many members of Congress. [THREAD]
“Last time I was in this room was on March 24th. A monumental day for all of us. With your help, we have been making history since that day” - @charlie_mirsky, MFOL’s 18-year-old federal lobbyist said in welcoming statement.
“Every time I speak to the #MarchForOurLives community I am reminded that I am surrounded by people who have been tirelessly fighting to make our communities safer.” - Congresswoman Lucy McBath
Rep.@LucyMcBath is one of the most inspiring people to ever hold public office.
Ted Deutch, Parkland’s member of Congress, spoke highly of the young leaders of March For Our Lives. He told personal stories and recounted moments of inspiration that have come from working and healing with his constituents.
We won’t say who this story was about… Just know they have a lot more free time now that the election has passed. 👀
“This is what a movement looks like — This is what a movement that cannot fail looks like.” - Senator Chris Murphy
Talking to a room of young leaders.

“We are stronger than the gun lobby is right now.” - Senator @ChrisMurphyCT
“Be crazy…crazy changes the world, but be honest with your principles. This is the face of my son, Joaquin. He is an activist and you will never forget that.” - Manuel Oliver, father of the movement.
“To every elected official in Congress, we say to you: your political life is insignificant compared to the lives of people who will be saved if you have the courage to vote the way you should.” - Speaker Pelosi🔥, on gun violence prevention legislation.
“Thank you for taking this to a new level of leadership in our country.” - @SpeakerPelosi
“When we were traveling the country we stopped at a restaurant in Texas, it started to rain and the people were so happy. It was their first rain in a long time. This is our rain...what happened on November 6th...what’s happening in Congress...I’m so thankful.” - @Emma4Change
We want to thank all the members who have continuously supported our gun violence prevention efforts.

This is only the start to the new year — we have a lot more coming!
Our organization was established not even a year ago - and although we have accomplished so much - the work has just begun.

105 people die from gun violence every day in America. Let’s save lives.
