Brady and March For Our Lives launched a campaign urging Congress to support CDC funding to end the gun violence epidemic.

Dear Senators, #WeNeedToKnow Solutions to Gun Violence

Gun violence is not a political issue, it is an issue of humanity — and it has changed the way my generation lives.

Rep. Dean Phillips teamed up with us to spread the urgency on this public health crisis.

Every year 35,000 people in the U.S. are killed by guns. However, without evidence-based research, there’s so much #WeNeedToKnow in order to identify and invest in solutions.

Senator and 2020 Presidential Candidate, Elizabeth Warren, spreading our #WeNeedToKnow message.

Recently, I had the opportunity to stand beside several members of Congress as they addressed gun violence for what it truly is: a public health crisis, an underfunded and underresearched crisis.

Gun violence is a contagion of death that takes the lives of 100 people in the U.S. each day. It is a disease that has overtaken communities across the country for far too long. Gun violence is not a political issue, it is an issue of humanity — and it has changed the way my generation lives.

On June 19, the House voted and passed this landmark funding bill. I am now calling on the Senate to bring it to a vote immediately.

On June 19, the House approved funding for CDC research on gun violence.

Inaction is not an answer, and right now we need answers.

It’s time for Congress to dedicate funds to the CDC for gun violence research — it is time for Congress to treat this epidemic like the health crisis it is. Join me in urging our senators to act.

We’re uniting Americans from coast to coast, red and blue and every color, to end gun violence. bradyunited.org
