Take a stand against gun violence
After seeing so many mass shootings happen in the U.S., it’s easy to feel helpless against the dire situation of guns in America. It’s hard to know what we can do, just as regular citizens. But if you want to take a stand against gun violence, there is something you can do. Today. Now. You can visit isyourbankloaded.org and check out if your bank supports the gun industry and the NRA. This website grades the 15 largest banks in the U.S. on how much business they do with gun manufacturers, the NRA, and the top recipients of NRA contributions in Congress. The site also allows you to send your bank an email pushing them to stop doing business with the gun industry until the U.S. adopts strict laws that make firearms significantly harder to get and impose safety standards in firearms.
Is Your Bank Loaded is a campaign of Guns Down America, the American Federation of Teachers, Colour of Change, Newtown Action Alliance, Surviors Empowered, This Is Our Lane, and the Violence Policy Centre.
