We’re telling McConnell, Trump, and elected officials everywhere who refuse to support gun safety: There’s blood on your hands. Follow this guide to organize your own grassroots #BloodyHands action.
First, pick an event or location
- Plan your own protest or rally
- Make it easy and attend a scheduled event, like a town hall or fundraiser!
- Look for Brady chapter events around the country. Use our website to find a list of events around the country held by representatives
- Red, washable poster/tempera paint, like here.
- Paper plates
- Hand wipes or water and paper towels so people can remove the paint after
Get to action
- Squirt the paint onto some paper plates
- People walking by can dip/rub their hand in it
- Only use one hand, so the other is free for your phone, wallet, etc.
- Have the hand wipes or water nearby if needed
Take photos and post to social media!
- Take a photo with the hashtags #BloodyHands. You can also use #EndGunViolence to reach more people.
- Tag @senatemajldr and @realdonaldtrump. If you’re taking local action, tag your local elected officials or representatives in Congress. If you don’t know your representative, you can find them here using your zip code.
- If you can, tag @bradybuzz so we can help amplify your posts!
