About DC Project

   The DC Project is a nationwide organization of women committed to safeguarding the Second Amendment.
   A non-partisan initiative of daughters, mothers, and sisters that believe education is the key to firearm safety and violence prevention, not legislation. We counter the disinformation gun control groups circulate by informing our friends, families, communities, and legislators with the truth that gun rights are human rights.
