Everytown for Gun Safety Action Fund endorsed Luz Reyes-Martin, a Moms Demand Action volunteer, running for Goleta City Council. Luz represents the growing power of Moms Demand Action volunteers as candidates for office themselves.
“Ending our gun violence epidemic requires passing strong gun laws, and that requires electing strong gun safety champions,” said John Feinblatt, president of Everytown for Gun Safety. “We’re proud to endorse these Moms Demand Action volunteers who are already walking the walk on gun safety.”
“Voters want candidates who will fight for gun safety – and there’s no stronger fighters than Moms Demand Action and Students Demand Action volunteers,” said Shannon Watts, founder of Moms Demand Action. “We’re incredibly proud to endorse our volunteers who are looking to take the step from activist to lawmaker by Demanding a Seat at every level of government – and our grassroots army of fellow volunteers are ready to help get them elected.”
