Emma Gonzalez sent me email....

First, I want to say thank you.

If you’re getting this email, you’re with us – you stood with us when we marched in D.C. alongside hundreds of marches around the country, and when we traveled the nation in a bus on the Road To Change starting even more conversations about ending gun violence. And you’ve been with us for the past few weeks, as we’ve been going to college campuses to help turn out young people to vote.

I don’t know what will happen tomorrow. I know that NRA-corrupted politicians are powerful, and they’ll do whatever they can to block policies that could end our country’s plague of gun violence.

But there’s one thing I’ve learned over and over this year – there are a hell of a lot more of US than THEM.

More of us want to save lives. More of us are fighting for our loved ones whose lives have been taken by guns. More of us are fighting for the little kids who shouldn’t have to grow up in a world of active shooter drills and mass shootings.

So tomorrow, let’s show up:

If you haven’t voted yet, vote tomorrow. Look up your polling place by texting CHANGE to 97-779. Make a plan. Figure out when you’re voting and how you’ll get there.

If you’ve already voted, get your phone right now and text everyone to remind them to vote, then post on social media to remind people online, too.

If we show up in huge numbers tomorrow, I know we’ll send a message. Not only to the immoral politicians who don’t deserve to be in office. But to people all around the country and the world who need to believe we can use our democracy to turn tragedy into change.

- Emma
