Right now, add your name to say you'll keep the heat on Congress until they vote on sensible solutions to reduce gun violence: my.barackobama.com/Reporting-Back Friend -- We know a thing or two about making change. We know that doing big things means all of us doing what we can, where we live. That couldn't have been clearer on Friday for the national gun violence Day of Action. We had 117 events in congressional districts across the country. Thousands of supporters joined in, and thousands more called and tweeted at your representatives, demanding real action from Washington to reduce gun violence. On the pavement, on the airwaves, and online, you helped put the pressure on Congress. Some of the highlights: There was a candlelight vigil in California. Folks in St. Louis reminded each other -- they deserve a vote. Supporters lined up outside a congressman's office in New Jersey, and volunteers in Nevada get people talking about the issues. In Tennessee, supporters held a memorial for victims of gun violence, reminding their community of the consequences of inaction, and folks braved the cold in Pennsylvania to show their support. That passion and commitment will drive this organization, and that's how we'll finish what we started.

Friend --

We know a thing or two about making change.

We know that doing big things means all of us doing what we can, where we live. That couldn't have been clearer on Friday for the national gun violence Day of Action.

We had 117 events in congressional districts across the country. Thousands of supporters joined in, and thousands more called and tweeted at your representatives, demanding real action from Washington to reduce gun violence. On the pavement, on the airwaves, and online, you helped put the pressure on Congress.

Check out some of the highlights.

A candlelight vigil in California:

Supporters in California at a candlelight vigil.


Folks in St. Louis reminded each other -- they deserve a vote:

They deserve a vote.


Supporters outside a congressman's office in New Jersey:

Lining up in New Jersey


Volunteers in Nevada get people talking about the issues:

OFA-Nevada wants universal background checks now.


In Tennessee, supporters held a memorial for victims of gun violence, reminding their community of the consequences of inaction:

Petals mark the human consequences of gun violence.


And folks braved the cold in Pennsylvania to show their support:

A cold day in Pennsylvania didn't stop these folks.


That passion and commitment will drive this organization, and that's how we'll finish what we started.

Keep it going:
