Tom Selleck quit the NRA board of directors! If he can come around to the right side of history, then SO CAN FedEx!!! Don’t forget to join us this Wesneday evening for our monthly NATIONAL FEDEX ACTION where we DEMAND that FedEx end it’s discount program with the NRA!!! We protest on the 26th of each month to draw attention to the fact that FedEx offers a 26% DISCOUNT to MEMBERS when they’re shipping GUNS. THAT’S INSANE!!! Please join us at 7:00pm on Wednesday, 9/26, at The FedEx office on 34th Street between 7th & 8th Avenues (closer to 8th Ave on the south side) to let them know how you feel! #boycottfedex #gaysagainstguns #weneedeveryone

Gays Against Guns member EXTRAORDINAIRE Virginia is one of the MANY MANY folks who’ve traveled to D.C. today to protest the Kavanaugh nomination! We are SO PROUD of EVERYONE who put their bodies on the line and use NON-VIOLENT DIRECT ACTION and CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE to bring attention to important issues, such as this one. GREAT WORK, Y’ALL!!! #gaysagainstguns #housingworks #defeatkavanaugh

Thank you @nyc@nycsaysenough for this great reminder! #Repost @nycsaysenough ・・・ Gun violence isn't just a human rights issue, it's a women's issue. It must be recognized that women are disproportionately affected by gun violence. Guns must be kept out of the hands of domestic abusers. Toxic masculinity also plays a huge role in this and we must work every day to shift societal gender norms. We do this work for the women who can't be here today to change the world with us.

In a win for transparency in campaign finance & funding, the Supreme Court upheld a lower-court ruling that effectively closes a loophole used by many conservative donors & entities (like the @nationalrifleassociation) to remain anonymous when donating to political campaigns. . . From NPR: “The Supreme Court on Tuesday insisted that many donations to predominantly conservative political nonprofit groups — what's often called dark money — be disclosed, seven weeks ahead of the 2018 midterm elections.” . . “The top four spenders identified by @issueonereform are the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the mainstream conservative Crossroads GPS, the Koch network's Americans for Prosperity and the National Rifle Association. Issue One says that collectively, the four groups pumped at least $357 million into elections between 2010 and 2016.” . . #gaysagainstguns #scotus #nrasashayaway #gunreform #campaignfinancereform #fec #issueone #supremecourt #politics #midterms #midtermelections
