I’m in Rhode Island today for our @MomsDemand Advocacy Day at the statehouse. @GovRaimondo has been a national leader in passing stronger, commonsense gun laws that save lives. And our volunteer base in the state has grown exponentially. #RIpolitics
One of the new Rhode Island state lawmakers I stood with today is @Justine4RI - she went from @MomsDemand volunteer to lawmaker in November, and just introduced the three new gun safety bills we’re supporting: rilin.state.ri.us/pressrelease/_…
We’re so grateful to @GovRaimondo for her support. So far, she’s signed a domestic gun violence law and a Red Flag law, and signed an executive order to keep guns out of schools. As she said, @MomsDemand volunteers don’t give up, and we won’t stop until these laws are passed.
The backdrop for our speakers today was one of the quilts @MomsDemand volunteers make across the US using a pattern called “Mother’s Dream.” Each quilt contains at least one block composed of meaningful fabric from a victim or survivor of gun violence: mothersdreamquilt.org
