The DC Project, Women for Gun Rights, returned to Washington, D.C., Sept. 13-16, 2022, to deliver its core message to Congress. The group’s 51 delegates representing 48 states met with legislators from both sides of the aisle, advocating that gun rights are human rights. Their effort concluded with a rally on the steps of the United States Supreme Court.

“This was our fifth fly-in and it was the most impactful trip we have experienced,” said DC Project Founder Dianna Muller. “We built bridges by sharing our personal and emotional stories of violence while emphasizing solutions the firearms industry is spearheading in mental health, school safety, and firearms education.”

During the trip, the Congressional Second Amendment Caucus, co-chaired by Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) and Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY), hosted a reception. The DC Project presented its pillars and explained how legislators can partner with the group to provide armor in the attacks on the Second Amendment. “This organization of women is a game changer. For years, anti-gun women and politicians have demanded Congress strip away the rights of law-abiding gun owners; the DC Project provides a counter to their misinformation,” said Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA).

In total, the delegates attended more than 135 meetings and also made countless impressions across the city with personal interactions with residents and tourists. The DC Project anticipates continuing the momentum at the individual state level.
