Join the March Against the NRA
July 12, 2017
On June 28th the National Rifle Association (NRA) released an ad which calls on "law-abiding" citizens to arm themselves against violent anti-Trump protesters with a "Clenched Fist of Truth."The divisive video, produced in response to the public upheaval over the police killing of Philando Castile, and featuring conservative commentator Dana Loesch, drew immediately criticism, including from some NRA members.
In response Woman's March Co-President Tamika Mallory sent an open letter to NRA President Wayne LaPierre denouncing the ad as dangerous and irresponsible, demanding that he take it down, and apologize to the American people.
On July 1st, the NRA countered with an attack ad refuting the letter and putting blame for public discourse on left wing radicals.

|The Women's March on Washington inspired more than five million people worldwide to march in solidarity January 21st, to send the message to the new Administration that women's rights are human rights and that, as a people, we will not tolerate those who practice policies of prejudice and division.
The organizers since harnessed the energy and activism of that day into a series of actions, and will continue to march for the rights and protections of all our communities as part of a collective fight for dignity, justice and freedom.
