In response to the National Rifle Association’s recent release of a series of aggressive recruitment videos, including one that targets Women’s March Co-President Tamika Mallory, local Los Angeles organizations have released their own video demanding that the NRA remove theirs. 

See video here:

 

“We know that we are not safe, but we are not scared either,” says Funmilola Fagbamila the video’s narrator. “We will continue to produce media, teach students, march, and protest to not only protect the first amendment as fiercely as the NRA protects the second – but to protect our lives from gun-toting racists.”

Patrisse Cullors, founder of Dignity and Power Now who is featured briefly in the video, says, “The NRA is releasing this hate filled propaganda and putting more and more families and communities at risk. We won’t be bullied, or allow for the NRA to continue to spew hate against marginalized communities.” 

The video asks for people to call the NRA at (800) 672-3888 and demand they remove their videos featured below.
