Squirrel Hill Stands Against Gun Violence joined forces with Moms Demand Action and grass roots group Order of the Phoenix to make calls for Emily Skopov. We heard from the candidate, including a deeply personal story about how gun violence has changed her life and then called voters. Phone bank training was provided for those new to this.

Out of 703 calls and 73 conversations, 50 supported Emily, 4 leaned Emily, 14 were undecided, and only 2 supported her opponent! We can flip this district! That's how we get better gun safety laws.

Volunteers from Squirrel Hill Stands Against Gun Violence joined Moms Demand Action's first 'Winning Wednesday' statewide phone bank to talk to voters about two great western PA candidates - Lissa Geiger Shulman and Emily Skopov. Together we made over 600 calls, had some good conversations, helped a few voters through the online mail in ballot application process and did our part to help elect gun safety advocates. We have another phone bank scheduled with Emily Skopov for this Sunday (September 13) and we have (so far) committed to 600 postcards for Lissa Geiger Shulman. You can sign up to help here.



Fourteen volunteers from Squirrel Hill Stands and Moms Demand Action spent a couple of hours making calls for Lissa Geiger Shulman, running for state representative in PA House District 30. We made 639 calls, having conversations with 59 voters (not a lot of people home today) and leaving messages with the rest. While phone banking can be slow some days (we made a lot more contact last weekend), it's the best way we have right now to reach voters. And every conversation brings us a step closer to winning a gun safety majority in the legislature.


You can find lots more phone banking opportunities on our event page. Plus ongoing postcarding events.
