Phone Bank for Michele Knoll for PA State House (PA HD-44)

Squirrel Hill Stands Against Gun Violence is teaming up with Grass Roots group extraordinaire, Order of the Phoenix for a phone bank to get out the vote for Michele Knoll, candidate for State House Representative in HD-44. Help us FLIP THIS DISTRICT and send a GUN SAFETY ADVOCATE TO HARRISBURG!!!

No experience is necessary. Once you sign up, you will receive an email with a link to a Zoom call and phone bank. This will come the day before or day of the phone bank so we don't miss last minute sign ups. You will sign onto Zoom, meet the candidate (virtually), here their platform and talking points. Then you can either stay on the call for phone bank training or jump off and start making calls. We will reconvene at the end for a quick debrief.

Postcard Writing for Candidates: Daniel Smith Jr for PA State House

Daniel Smith is a gun safety advocate running for State House Representative in PA House District 12 (part of Butler County including Seven Fields, Valencia, Cranberry Twp and Mars). This district has been held by Daryl Metcalfe (a rabidly anti gun safety legislator and obstructionist) since 1999. FLIPPING this district would make a HUGE difference in passing good gun legislation. Once you sign up, you will receive an email with instructions. Dan is endorsed by Everytown as a Gun Sense Candidate of Distinction.

Learn more about Dan and find additional ways to support him here.

 

 

Postcard Writing for Candidates: Lissa Geiger Shulman for PA State House

Lissa Geiger Shulman is a gun safety advocate running for State House Representative in PA House District 30 (Fox Chapel, Hampton, O'Hara, Richland and most of Shaler). This is one of the MOST FLIPPABLE State House districts and ESSENTIAL to gaining a gun safety majority in the legislature. Once you sign up, you will receive an email with instructions on how to get your postcards, a script and additional information. Lissa is endorsed by CeaseFirePA as a Gun Safety Candidate and by Everytown as a Gun Sense Candidate of Distinction.

Michele Knoll is a gun safety advocate running for State House Representative in PA House District 44 (western Pittsburgh suburbs - Sewickley, Moon, Edgeworth, Crescent, Ohio Twp, Aleppo). We CAN flip this seat for a GUN SAFETY MAJORITY. Knoll is an excellent candidate, running against a first term incumbent who just barely won the seat in 2018 - by just over 1000 votes.

Conor Lamb is a gun safety advocate running for re-election to Congress in PA District 17 (much of Allegheny County, all of Beaver County and Cranberry Twp).
