My name is Ry Lei. I'm your new Director of Communications. The past few weeks have been wild, but we're settling into a rhythm, even though it feels like a weird one.
Before I get into the specifics of why this email is in your inbox or how it even got there in the first place, we — the MFOL CA state board — wanted to personally thank you for committing to the March For Our Lives.
Although this journey started with a focus on gun control, the truth is we are fighting for so much more. This fight is intersectional; it's complex, with many issues indirectly, and directly, affecting others.
There's no way for us to confront gun control without talking about racism, mental health stigma, voting rights, disparity in education, and so much more. So we've decided to confront it all, to the best of our ability.
We can't do it without you. So please stay with us for this first long email (I promise that most of the rest will be shorter).
Oh, also, you're getting this email because at some point you signed up to get contacted through the MFOL National website.
Here are the answers to some questions you might have.
