Julia Brownley

US House California — 26th District Democrat
Since she was first elected to Congress in 2012, Representative Julia Brownley has met far too many constituents whose lives have been forever changed due to the deadly impacts of gun violence. She knows that our nation has faced tragedy after tragedy, and that more must be done to keep Americans safe.

Personally moved by the mass shootings at UC Santa Barbara and the Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks, California, Representative Brownley has been tireless in her work to bring an end to the gun violence epidemic plaguing our country. As a member of the House Gun Violence Prevention Task Force, she is deeply committed to advancing policies like implementing universal background checks on all gun sales, fully funding community violence intervention programs to break the cycles of violence plaguing communities from coast to coast, and preventing individuals who commit domestic abuse from obtaining weapons. In office, Representative Brownley introduced the Gun Suicide Prevention Act, which would require firearm manufacturers and retailers to include warning labels that provide the number of the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. By labeling every firearm with this lifesaving information, people in a moment of crisis may be able to make a critical connection and turn to someone for help, instead of harming themselves or others. In 2022, she also joined colleagues on both sides of the aisle to pass the first gun safety bill signed into law in nearly 30 years: the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act.
With Representative Julia Brownley helping to lead the way to keep communities safe, we know a better future is possible for generations of Californians to come. As such, it is incumbent on California voters to mobilize like never before to send such a committed champion in the fight to save lives back to Washington DC this fall.

We are proud to endorse Julia Brownley for the US House of Representatives.
