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.

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.
The State House is located on the corners of Capitol and State Streets in Augusta. The west entrance, facing the Cross Office Building, is open to the public.
Free public parking is located in front of the Cross Office Building, accessible from Sewall Street, and in the multilevel parking garage on the corner of Capitol and Sewall Streets. There are several additional smaller lots, northeast of the parking garage, near the Blaine House, on Wade and Grove Streets.
Handicapped parking spaces are located between the State House and the Cross Office Building and on the Capitol Street side of the west entrance. There are additional spaces on the lower levels of the parking garage and near the north end of the Cross Office Building lot.
We will meet in the Welcome Center, this is located just inside of the security screening area inside the State House.
We anticipate that there will be opposing activists present at the State House. Please do not engage with them. We must keep ourselves focused on talking with legislators.
