During the Fourth of July (June 27 - July 7) and August (Aug. 1 - Sept. 7) congressional recesses, reach out to your congressional leaders to express support for protecting critical funding for public health agencies and the Prevention and Public Health Fund, and in support of passing comprehensive legislation to reduce gun violence.
