30 Billboards Outside Cowardly Incumbents;
A National Campaign
Inspired by the recent Academy Award Contender, 'Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri,' the survivors of Columbine, Sandy Hook, Aurora, VA Tech, Orlando, San Bernardino, and a shameful amount of other tragedies, have decided that enough is enough. It is time that we hold our leaders accountable for their inaction in the face of tragedy after tragedy. These cowardly leaders are in the pockets of the NRA and refuse to pass sensible gun control legislation that reflects what the vast majority of Americans, including gun owners, desire.
They are afraid of the NRA.
WE. ARE. NOT.
We are proud to share that we have successfully funded 13 billboards through our Stealth Funding Campaign. We are now ready to go public with our mission. The first 13 will go up in time for the 19th anniversary of the Columbine High School shooting on April 20th. We'll be organizing candlelight vigils at each of the billboards, and look forward to seeing our supporters there.
Billboards will be up in vulnerable incumbent congressional districts of those who have received substantial financial support from the NRA. With a $1 million campaign goal, Survivors Empowered will keep the billboards up through the 2018 mid-term elections in all 30 congressional districts and until sensible gun legislation is passed into law that makes the following sensible reforms:
- National ban on assault weapons
- Raise the age limit to 21 for purchase of weapons
- Close the gun show loophole
- Universal background checks and a waiting period for all gun purchases
- Repeal Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms ACT (PLCAA)
It is crucial that we raise funds as soon as possible to deploy these billboards. Please support the Parkland Kids and the survivors of the countless, senseless tragedies so we can live in a country where parents don’t fear sending their children to school.
