Dialogue: Racism


“Men hate each other because they fear each other, and they fear each other because they don’t know each other,
and they don’t know each other because they are often separated from each other.”    
  Dr. Martin Luther King



The Center for the Healing of Racism offers Dialogue: Racism, which provides a safe, respectful

and loving atmosphere for individuals to learn new information, share their experiences, ask questions -
 to dispel the fears, get to know each other, and to stop the separation.

Since they released their latest ad featuring Purple Heart recipient Glenn Kunkel, almost ten thousand veterans, military family members and VoteVets supporters have signed our petition supporting universal background checks. 

For us, this issue makes sense. Every service member needs to pass a background check before we're allowed to handle a weapon, and we should require the same of civilians at home. 

The Senate is expected to vote on this issue in less than two weeks, and they need to hear from us before they do. 

Use our "Contact Congress Tool" to tell your Senators you support universal background checks for gun purchases. 


Since our last email, an outpouring of contributions allowed us to put almost $200,000 behind the ad in three key states. 

We have a unique and important voice in this fight, and I hope you'll make sure yours is heard today. 

All the best, 

Jon Soltz 
Iraq War Veteran 
Chairman, VoteVets 

Dear Kristin - 

One year ago, I was proud to walk onto the House floor for the State of the Union Address. 

The next day, after casting my last vote, I resigned my seat in Congress. 

Mark and I will be there again tomorrow night, because this is a critical moment in time for legislation to reduce gun violence in the United States. 

That's also why we're releasing our first television ad on the issue. As one of the first donors to Americans for Responsible Solutions, I wanted you to see it first. 

Watch the ad and forward it to your friends: 



Nine out of ten Americans support universal background checks for gun purchases. 

Congress must act. Let's get this done.
