The D.C. Project is 50 women, one from every state, meeting their legislators in Washington, D.C. as firearm owners and 2nd Amendment supporters. The 2nd Amendment should not be a partisan issue and our goal is to take every member of congress to the range and educate them on firearms safety, all the while giving them the opportunity to get to know us as good, upstanding, responsible citizens. Education is the key!
The DCP is a diverse group of women that span the multitude of reasons of why firearm ownership is important! We have hunters, professional shooters, concealed carry instructors, military/LEO. We have women that have been denied the opportunity to defend themselves in gun free zones and lived through horrific attacks including rape and the murder of a loved one; one that successfully defended herself with a firearm; a naturalized immigrant that has seen her home country of Venezuela lose their gun rights. We are mothers, daughters, sisters; young and old; black, brown, white, and in between; Democrats, Republicans and Independents; but most importantly, we are all Americans!
The DCP started in 2016 and travels to D.C. annually. We all come together at the beginning/ending and each evening of the 4 day trip. During the day, we break up into small groups to make appointments with legislators, speaking to members and/or staff. On the last day, we have a rally on the Capitol lawn. Finally, we reserve a range and offer hands on experience with firearms and scenario training for legislators and staff to wrap up the project! The next trip is scheduled for June 2018.
The project incurs expenses associated with the range, evening meetings/dinners, and admin support, such as printing and nametags and PA rental for the rally. The women that participate have been volunteering their time and their money for the past two years.
My name is Dianna Muller, retired police officer and professional shooter. I have started this GFM in order to defray costs for the project as well as the participants. The money raised from the GFM will go directly to the project, covering admin costs first and then meetings/dinners second, and hotel and other travel related expenses for each of the women. My hope is to cover the expenses of the project as well as the expenses for the participants. The funds will be withdrawn into my personal and account and used for the project's needs.
