Tell The United Way To #ReverseTheRaffle

After initially sending a cease & desist letter to the Otero County United Way chapter regarding a planned raffle of over 100 guns (including military style weapons), United Way Worldwide secretly reversed its decision to stop the raffle.

This comes after New Mexicans to Prevent Gun Violence informed United Way Worldwide about the gun raffle and received a confirmation of its suspension. However, NMPGV was not notified of the position reversal and learned of the news from a local press outlet.

Let United Way Worldwide President and CEO Brian Gallagher know that we expect him to act with courage and not cave to the gun lobby. Make your voice heard using our simple tool below.
