Personally, I've spent a lot of time being active in the political advocacy community and if there's one thing that's certain, it's that legislative advocacy (i.e. talking to your politicians) is the most effective way to bring about serious change when it comes to anything. I think it would be amazing to see your project partner with larger organizations and host walkouts and anti-NRA rallies to truly make a difference. I applaud you for tackling such a serious issue, keep up the good work!
