Women to rally in Washington in nonpartisan support of gun ownership

AUSTIN, Texas — Women from around the country are preparing to travel to the U.S. Capitol as part of the DC Project, a nonpartisan initiative that brings 50 women, one from each state, to Washington, D.C., to meet with their legislators about issues addressing the Second Amendment.

The women will meet with Congressional members and staff from June 12-17.

The DC Project was started by Dianna Muller to encourage female shooters to meet with legislators in order to give politicians a direct connection to the fastest-growing demographic of gun owners.

Muller reached out to A Girl & A Gun Women’s Shooting League to assist with the project. Robyn Sandoval, executive director of the group, is one of the participants meeting with lawmakers on Capitol Hill.

The DC Project will host a rally on the West Senate Lawn of the U.S. Capitol on Friday, June 16. Speakers will include Muller, Sandoval, Dakota Overland of Minnesota, Nikki Goeser, Amanda Johnson, Holly Sullivan, and other women of the firearms industry as they address the rising demographic of female gun ownership, the value of the 2nd Amendment in today’s society and the importance of the preservation of America’s gun culture, from conservation and commerce to competitive sports, hunting, and self-defense.
