Shontel Brown

US House Ohio — 11th District Democrat
In Congress, Representative Shontel Brown has consistently proven herself to be a passionate public servant who can deliver real results for the people of Northeast Ohio. For Representative Brown, this issue is personal—her community has often been plagued by gun violence that puts too many lives at risk. She knows that everyone deserves to live a life free of gun violence, and she’s committed to taking on the reckless gun lobby and getting dangerous weapons off of her community’s streets.

In Washington, Representative Brown has fought for universal background checks on all gun sales, mandated waiting periods for gun purchases, and a ban on assault weapons. She is also committed to addressing the root causes of gun violence, investing in education, and supporting our children through community violence intervention programs. Representative Brown rightly believes that we must fund suicide prevention efforts, and she supports the kinds of gun buy-back programs that have been effective in cities nationwide, including in Northeast Ohio. She knows that we must provide federal tools and resources to law enforcement officers to effectively combat violent crime, and has proven that by working together, we can achieve a safer future for the next generation. As a gun owner and concealed carry permit holder, Representative Brown respects the Second Amendment and understands that we can also support commonsense gun safety laws at the same time—which is why she’s worked tirelessly to pass lifesaving legislation in Washington DC like the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act, which was the first gun safety package signed into law in nearly 30 years.

This fall, we must flip the US House, and we know that a potential majority runs through districts like OH-11. It’s imperative that we send Representative Shontel Brown back to Congress—with determined champions like her leading the way, we can continue to pass comprehensive solutions to end America’s epidemic of gun violence once and for all.

We are proud to endorse Shontel Brown for the US House of Representatives.
