Maine: Advocacy Day for red flag bill on Tuesday, March 19

Tipping point for the NRA

The alert is from Moms Demand Action

We’re going to have a great day of speaking with legislators and standing beside Senator Millett at a press conference at 12. Senator Millett will talk about her red flag bill. She has crafted a strong red flag bill that will empower family members and law enforcement to petition for and extreme risk protection order that temporarily restricts a person’s access to guns when they pose a risk of using them to harm themselves or others.  

Red Flag Advocacy Day 
Tuesday 3/19 9-1pm

Here are a few things you should know about the day.

Training

We will provide you with a training about the policy and how to find your legislator.

There will be lots of experienced volunteers around to help guide you if this is your first time at the State House. 

Contact your legislator ahead of Tuesday

It’s helpful to let your legislators know you will be in the State House on Tuesday and hope to meet with them to talk about supporting a red flag bill. Just a quick email would be great.
