Washington D.C., August 14, 2020-- The Brady Campaign is proud to endorse Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL-23) for reelection to the United States House of Representatives. Rep. Wasserman Schultz is an invaluable asset to gun violence survivors everywhere, leading our country to change long before and well after the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
Brady Campaign President Kris Brown shared,
"Following the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, Rep. Wasserman Schultz took action to keep our schools and communities safe. Rep. Wasserman Schultz joined us in calling for change and introducing H.R. 1705, Jamie’s Law, which would prevent prohibited purchasers from accessing ammunition. She has also championed H.R. 1296, the Assault Weapons Ban of 2019, which would ban the sale of assault weapons and high capacity magazines. If we are to honor the countless killed and injured by gun violence with meaningful action, we need leaders like Rep. Wasserman Schultz in Congress. Brady is proud to endorse Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz for re-election to the United States House of Representatives."
Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz shared,
"Ending gun violence both changes and saves lives, and the Brady Campaign's comprehensive approach to curbing this public health scourge should be a model for congressional action, and it's one that I wholeheartedly support. I'm proud to be endorsed by an organization whose members fully devote themselves to keeping American families safe. The pain and cost of government inaction to reduce gun violence is intolerable, and I'm committed to reversing it."
Rep. Wasserman Schultz has demonstrated her commitment to saving the lives of her constituents and all Americans from gun violence. Her home state of Florida has suffered from some of the worst mass violence in recent history. To prevent these shootings in the future, we need members like Rep. Wasserman Schultz. Brady is proud to endorse Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz for reelection to the United States House of Representatives.
Brady has one powerful mission — to unite all Americans against gun violence. We work across Congress, the courts, and our communities with over 90 grassroots chapters, bringing together young and old, red and blue, and every shade of color to find common ground in common sense. In the spirit of our namesakes Jim and Sarah Brady, we have fought for over 45 years to take action, not sides, and we will not stop until this epidemic ends. It’s in our hands.
