9:00 - 11:00 AM


Sign Up To Testify In Favor Of A True ERPO
Last week, Speaker Talbot Ross introduced a new bill that would create a true Extreme Risk Protection Order system for Maine. This will make sure that families and communities have the tools they need to keep their loved ones safe in the face of a mental health crisis.

This is a vital part of the gun safety legislative package so we’re asking you to Show Up for Gun Safety at the State House once again. The Public Hearing for LD 2283 has been scheduled for 9:00 AM on Friday, April 5.

The Speaker has shared with us that a large showing of support at the State House is vital to making sure this bill gets through the committee with the same success as the rest of our legislative package. So whether you plan to testify in person, submit written testimony, or just come to the Hearing while wearing something orange, every supporter that shows up counts!
If you can’t come to the State House, you can still make sure that your voice is heard to help get this bill passed by:
1. Testifying by Zoom (this requires immense patience, as you’ll go last)
2. Submitting written testimony online

And if you can come to the State House but don’t want to testify in person, please do! You can hold signs, wear something orange in support of our movement and bills, and possibly speak to legislators to gauge their support for our legislation.
