1/After the shooting in Vegas, we wondered more we could do. We started poking around the NRA website & we were shocked to see how many corporations seemed ok with associating themselves with a divisive, dangerous lobbying organization. #DrainTheNRA was born.
2/We decided we'd focus on local, LA-based @TrueCar. We tweeted, wrote a fancy letter, started a petition & 20 people protested in front of the office on the Sandy Hook anniversary in December. #DrainTheNRA #BoycottNRA
3/We spent the holidays & Jan building our website while watching school shooting after school shooting. Then Parkland happened. Fuck it, let's protest. This Mon, the People's Rally Against Gun Violence in Pershing Sq took place. #BoycottNRA #DrainTheNRA
4/Then this week we & so many Twitter went after NRA's corporate partners. In a matter of days, over 15 companies and counting left the NRA including the one that started it all for us. #BoycottNRA #DrainTheNRA
5/All of this is happening b/c 17 people lost their lives & we decided that now is the time to finally do the right thing after so many have lost their lives. We can change this country. We can save lives. We are a force. Don't stop. It's life or death. #BoycottNRA #DrainTheNRA
