Take Action: Tell Your Representative to Stop Cuts to Gun Violence Prevention Programs 

Last month, AFT asked its members to tell lawmakers to stop MAGA politicians from reversing a Biden Administration policy to strengthen the background check system for purchasing guns. So far, our activism is working. But this week, extremists in Congress are proposing to cut funding for gun violence prevention activities. 

We must take action to protect our students and teachers across Texas and stop Republicans in Congress from putting our kids in danger.  

You can write your representative and tell them to fund safe communities and to stop the cuts to crucial gun violence prevention programs.  

The House of Representatives is working on a spending bill for the Department of Justice that includes cuts to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) and community violence intervention (CVI) programs. 

We cannot allow this to happen; the potential harm to our communities and families is too great.
