VICTORY: Democratic Party rejects the NRA and other predatory corporate donors
Three weeks after the Las Vegas shooting, more than 20,000 people signed a petition by MoveOn member Sandy Phillips—whose daughter, Jessi, was slaughtered in the Aurora, Colorado theater massacre in 2012—asking the DNC, the governing body of the national Democratic Party, to reject donations from the gun industry.
The DNC heard us and took action: They passed an official resolution rejecting donations from the gun lobby and other corporate donors that conflict with the Democrats’ platform.
Additionally, dozens of members of Congress who have received NRA campaign support are now facing pressure from tens of thousands of MoveOn members in their districts to give back or donate NRA contributions to causes focused on gun violence prevention.
