Today’s Action: Support a music video that promotes gun reform

There are many routes to passing stronger gun safety laws in our country. Direct calls and emails to our representatives is one — adding our voices to protests and marches is another. Yet a third approach is reaching and encouraging fellow voters…and future voters.

That’s why today’s action takes a break from calling Congress and instead is about supporting a project that speaks to our brave and powerful student population, encouraging them to continue fighting for themselves.

Bodies: Place Called Us is a music video under development that tackles gun reform, set to the lyrical music of musician Alex Mackey. The production needs 1000 ‘followers’ by April 25 on Seed & Spark in order to qualify for vital funding. No donation necessary — just your ‘follow’ of support!

‘Follow’ Bodies: Place Called Us on Seed & Spark to help this important project qualify for funding – change tomorrow’s laws by encouraging today’s youth!

The arts and pop culture have always been a field where progressive ideas and political change ignite. And music videos specifically have a long history of spreading clear political ideas to millions of viewers in mere minutes.

Bodies: Place Called Us has an experienced 90% female and 10% allies production team, with a long history of crafting strong messages, including executive producer Penelope Wong (who worked on the Academy Award nominated “Last Day of Freedom”) and director Reena Dutt (PSA for the #MeToo movement seen on NowThis and HuffPost.)

The most powerful voices we’ve heard recently are the youth of our nation, speaking out in the wake of the Parkland, Florida tragedy – and we’re already seeing their positive effect on legislators. We must do all we can to support their efforts.

Help Bodies: Place Called Us reach 1000 followers on Seed & Spark by April 25 by ‘following’ and sharing! As Snoop Dogg (née Lion née Dogg) said in his anti-gun violence video, “No guns allowed.”

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition making Mike Pence pay back the $250,000 he spent for his racist NFL stunt, and join the Americans demanding Congress protect Dreamers NOW!
