The organizers of the Women's March have opened dialogue with the National Rifle Association through an Open Letter by Tamika Mallory, co-President of the Women's March. The NRA represents some of the strongest lobbying power in the United States and thereby some of the most dangerous policies our country adopts.
Please join the Women's March in calling on the NRA to take the following actions:
- Immediately remove the recent irresponsible and dangerous propaganda videos narrated by conservative talk radio host Dana Loesch.
- Issue an apology to the American people for the video you sponsored, which bears your name and logo, as it suggests armed violence against communities of color, progressives and anyone who does not agree with this Administration's policies.
- Make a statement to defend Philando Castile's Second Amendment right to own a firearm and demand the Department of Justice indict the police officer who killed him for exercising his Second Amendment right and his privilege as a licensed concealed carry permit holder. This call is clearly in line with the mission and purpose of the NRA as an organization that purports to be the lobby and defender of the right to bear arms.
