Where: Zoom - we will send you your link closer to the date after you sign up.

On November 9th, you will be able to show Wisconsin legislators that Wisconsinites want them to support the lifesaving gun violence prevention bills that were recently introduced, including background checks on all gun sales, a process for obtaining extreme risk protection orders (ERPO), and important protections for victims of domestic violence.

Likewise, it's your chance to demand that they reject the series of dangerous, pro-gun bills they've introduced that will put us all in more danger.

This event will be all virtual, and we will help you prepare in advance to make sure you feel comfortable, no matter your experience. You will have the opportunity to speak with legislators, or, if you are not interested in talking, you can simply show up to demonstrate our strength in numbers. Either way, your presence will make a difference!!



There is an appalling level of gun violence in our state. More than 600 Wisconsinites – our neighbors, coworkers and loved ones – are killed each year by guns.

But it doesn’t have to be this way.

We need only to look to other states, to see that gun violence is preventable. The evidence and research are clear: Strong gun laws save lives. 

And states that put that lesson into law, like Connecticut, New York and Hawaii, are proving it. Unfortunately, Wisconsin has failed to take the commonsense steps that would keep our families and communities safe.

WAVE fills a vital role rallying public support, pressing for action, and giving people all across our state a place to turn for trusted information and bold leadership on gun violence prevention policies.

Founded in 1997 by passionate volunteers, we have grown to include tens of thousands of supporters representing every county in Wisconsin. And, as our influence has grown, so has our critical role with reporters and legislators as the go-to voice for lifesaving gun laws.
