Gun violence is a labor issue.

Eleven days ago: A shooting at a Tops Friendly Markets store targeting the Black community.

Two days ago: A shooting at Robb Elementary School targeting children.

Every day, our country loses people to gun violence.

What else is there to say?

Words aren’t enough; we must act.

We must create laws that stop these preventable deaths.

This is a workplace issue. This is a school issue. This is a community issue.

That makes it a labor issue. And we must act.

These mass shootings are a stark reminder of why the Senate must stop hiding behind arcane procedures to avoid preventing gun violence and take action.

Because working people deserve safe workplaces without fear of a mass shooting. And America’s children deserve to learn and thrive in safe schools.

In Solidarity,
