We are calling on you to:
- End political contributions to candidates who take money from the NRA and vote against gun reform. From 2016 to 2020, studios with films nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars donated $4,241,750 to such lawmakers. Their opposition to gun reform is literally putting your audiences and employees in danger.
- Use your political clout and leverage in Congress to actively lobby for gun reform. Keeping everyone safe should be a top corporate priority for your studio.
- Support survivors and gun violence intervention programs to help survivors of gun violence heal and reduce every-day gun violence in the communities you serve.
