Supporting Moms Demand Action

AAUW of Murfreesboro supports the advocacy efforts of other organizations, such as the Tennessee chapter of Moms Demand Action. Gun legislation is not a critical priority for AAUW, however, AAUW National does recognize "that gun violence is a public health crisis." If gun legislation is important to you, then please consider supporting the campaign below hosted by Moms Demand Action.
URGENT: HB18 and HB 786 Permitless Carry Bills will be heard in Criminal Justice Sub Committee NEXT WEEK on Wednesday, February 24. This is our #1 priority bill we need to fight against!!
We need you to make 4 phone calls to KEY members of the committee before Wednesday:

Rep. Curcio 615-741-3513
Rep. Farmer 615-741-4419
Rep. Howell 615-741-7799
Rep. Russell 615-741-3736
If you have some extra time, please feel free to call all members of the committee - listed here.


Sample Script 

My name is ____________ and I strongly urge Rep.__________ to vote no on permitless carry bills HB18 and HB786 that will be up in the Criminal Justice subcommittee on Wednesday, Feb. 24th. I side with our law enforcement, gun safety instructors, and business owners who all believe our permitting system should not be weakened. If you vote for permitless carry, you are voting against what majority of Tennesseean voters want. 
Pro Tip: Always be respectful when calling lawmakers. Feel free to add your personal story to your message. Are you a gun owner? Veteran? Survivor? Parent? Why is this issue prevalent to you? 
Don't Forget to please fill out this form to let us know you took an action! Not only does this help us track who is being contacted, but it helps us hold our legislators accountable for their votes.
