DC Project

2016

The DC Project is a nonpartisan initiative bringing 50 women, at least one from each state, to Washington, DC, to meet legislators, and reveal the faces and stories of 2A supporters. 

.. to influence Representatives and Senators not by demanding compliance, but rather through developing a relationship. Simply meeting them, getting to know them. Letting them see an actual gun-owning constituent. Possibly, changing the image some might have of such a person.
