Your Call Script

Hello, my name is [NAME] and I’m a constituent of Representative [NAME]. I’m calling to ask the Representative to urge Congress to commit $150 million annually for community-based gun violence intervention groups, and to cosponsor the Break the Cycle of Violence Act, H.R. 4836. Community-based violence intervention programs are proven to reduce gun violence, but they are critically endangered due to a lack of sustainable funding. Do you know if the Representative supports the Break the Cycle of Violence Act?

[IF YES] That’s great! Would the Representative also be willing to advocate for earmarked funding for community-based violence prevention groups in future relief packages?

[IF NOT SURE] Okay! I hope that my call can be noted, and I encourage the Representative to look into the Break the Cycle of Violence Act, H.R. 4836.

[IF NO] Okay, thank you for your time. I hope that my support as a constituent can be noted.
