Indivisible Kirkland/Kirkland Safe’s Gun Safety Proposal will be presented to the Kirkland City Council on April 17th and likely voted on May 1st. It’s incredibly important that we have as much visible member support as possible in order to get the resolution passed by the Council. Here’s how you can show your support:
- Please write a letter of support for this proposal, which will be included in the packet we present to the Council. We’ve created an easy template for writing your letter and provided some examples. It should only take you a moment and will really help our efforts with the Council. Go here to draft your letter and submit it.
- Attend the May 1st City Council meeting to support the proposed resolution. A room full of supporters would significantly bolster our request. The City Council meeting will be at 7:30pm on Tuesday, May 1st at Kirkland City Hall. We will have several speakers presenting during “Items from the Audience.” The Council will likely include a discussion and vote as agenda items during the body of the meeting.
- Sign our petition on Change.org, which demonstrates community support for a resolution on gun safety. You’ll find the petition here: https://www.change.org/p/kirkland-wa-city-council-support-a-gun-safety-resolution-in-kirkland-wa
We are working for a positive vision for our lives and our community. This effort involves resisting the current administration’s agenda, but it also means going beyond that – being proactive, not simply reactive.
We imagine a nation where all voices are heard, where hate has no place, where the sick and struggling are supported, where the planet is treated as precious, and where democracy is strong. This agenda is far more important and more powerful than anything coming out of Washington DC right now.
We utilize all levels of government to implement this vision – federal, state, and local. Our group is actively engaged with the community: with our elected officials, with other organizations, with sister Indivisible groups, with businesses, and with concerned citizens looking for support.
Inclusion – we want to hear from diverse perspectives, knowing that this diversity makes us stronger.
Respect – we are a safe and supportive community.
Truth – we deal with fact, not allowing ourselves to slip into the emotional frenzy that is so tempting in these times.
Peace – we fight for our vision using peaceful tactics.
Democracy – we know that our country is strongest when our democracy is strongest.
