Recognize the Red

The General Federation of Women’s Clubs (GFWC) and the New Jersey State Federation of Women’s Clubs (NJSFWC) have a long history of supporting legislative action to improve the lives of club members and others throughout our state and country.

The “RECOGNIZE THE RED” is a campaign to establish the GFWC brand with the United States and state legislative bodies. The two bills chosen for the campaign are Miranda’s Law (H.R. 6518) and the 3D Printed Gun Safety Act (H.R. 6649; S3304). The goal of Miranda’s Law is to keep unsafe school bus drivers off the road. The 3D Printed Gun Safety Act would prohibit the publication of 3D printer plans for the printing of firearms.

How can you help?

For Miranda’s Law you can contact your U.S. Representative to request the bill be voted out of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee. Also state that you want it posted for a vote on the House floor. Sign your letter in red and include GFWC with your signature. Contact your U.S. Representative and U.S. Senator about the 3D Printed Gun Safety Act. Tell them you want the bills voted out of the Judiciary Committee and you want them posted for a vote on the floor of the House and Senate. Emails and letters should be signed in red and include GFWC (in red).
