"Earlier this year, the U.S. House passed legislation requiring universal background checks on every firearm sale and transfer, appropriating funds for gun violence research, and closing loopholes in laws that allow stalkers to obtain guns. And now it’s time for us to ensure the U.S. Senate does the same."
  
"The U.S. Senate is coming back to work today, and we need your help to let them know their first order of business should be prioritizing the lives of the American people. Send a welcome back note to your Senators asking them to prioritize legislation to end gun violence."

"Over a 48 hour period from August 3rd to August 4th, our country witnessed more tragic examples of the consequences of inaction in the face of a public safety crisis: twenty-two people were killed in El Paso, Texas, ten were killed in Dayton, Ohio, and Chicago's Mount Sinai Hospital temporarily stopped accepting patients Sunday morning because they were at capacity following a series of shootings. Another shooting also followed in Odessa and Midland, TX on August 31, where seven people were killed. 
  
"This is not normal. We're calling on the U.S. Senate to finally take action to address this horrific national public safety threat." 
  

"Americans are demanding gun safety reform like never before. Legislation passed in the U.S. House earlier this year, H.R. 8, the Bipartisan Background Check Act, is supported by 97% of the American people. But the U.S. Senate has left lifesaving bills to falter in that chamber by refusing to even bring them up for a vote. We must hold our politicians accountable for choosing partisanship over the will of the American people."
 
"Contact your Senators about life-saving legislation to end gun violence today!" @LWV

"Why Vote ?"

The cards were designed by the League of Women Voters of Lawrence Township.  Our league is very active with voter registration events and  decided to design a motivating givaway for those already registered voters who stop by our table to chat.

High School Voter Registration Project

"June marked the end of our 2019 High School Voter Registration project," said LWVUS staffer Alicia Gurrieri. "With a record-breaking 60 Leagues participating, volunteers registered a total of 20,115 high school student in 28 states across the country, plus D.C." https://www.lwv.org/blog/leagues-register-over-20000-new-youth-voters

 

"We know that young people, particularly those who are not in a four-year college, are often left out of the conversation and not given the tools needed to become engaged members of our democracy. Our research shows that voter registration and education are critical to turnout of young voters. By building on relationships with local high schools and community colleges, League volunteers were able to host a total of 774 registration events reaching over 62,000 students."

 

"Despite common misconceptions, young people want to be engaged."
