A note from Everytown. [View all]



Across the country, and up and down the ballot, Gun Sense Candidates who ran on the issue of gun safety won their elections. In Virginia, where MAGA Republicans were hoping to win a trifecta, we not only held a Gun Sense Majority in the Senate, but flipped the House of Delegates to secure a Gun Sense Majority in both chambers—including nine Moms Demand Action volunteers.

We're especially proud of the 162 Moms Demand Action volunteers across the country who ran for office in this year's elections—a majority of whom have already declared victory in the races called so far! There are now more former Moms Demand Action volunteers in elected office than ever before. Truly, our volunteer-led movement is bringing real change at all levels of government thanks to their hard work, expertise, and organizing power.

Yesterday's victories prove once again that gun safety is a winning issue at the ballot box. And it's evidence that the movement to end gun violence is stronger than ever.

Andy, while we're celebrating our wins, we're more determined than ever to forge ahead in our work to pass stronger gun laws, take on the powerful gun lobby, and end gun violence in America. And we couldn't do it without supporters like you: Help fuel our movement so we can continue our life-saving work to fight for a future free from gun violence.
