Dianna Muller, DC Project Founder, was recently honored at the 2021 Gundie Awards that were hosted by Forge Relations at the Ox Ranch in Uvalde, TX. The first-of-its-kind Jerry Miculek Achievement Award was presented to Muller, recognizing her integrity and commitment to both the Second Amendment and the Constitution. The annual Gundie Awards aim to recognize outstanding influencers on social media, YouTube, and personalities within the firearms industry.
Given by Jerry himself, the Jerry Miculek Achievement Award is awarded to the person of his choice who is an exemplary pinnacle in the gun community. This individual must hold dear the values of the Second Amendment and the Constitution and carry themselves with integrity. “Dianna represents all of us with her dedication to 2A advocacy. Across the gun community and our country, we all win because of her efforts to educate lawmakers and encourage 2A activism through the DC Project organization,” Miculek stated.
“To have the greatest shooter in the world recognize the work of the DC Project is pretty awesome!” says Muller. “I am honored to accept this award, but need to give a shout-out to all of the women who make this effort effective! I certainly don’t do it by myself.”
The DC Project was launched by Muller in 2015 to gather one woman from every state in Washington, DC, to create relationships with legislators. As of today, the foundation is comprised of hundreds of women who advocate on national and state levels.
“I encourage everyone who believes in the Second Amendment to participate in the #TealFor2a campaign to present a counter visual, as well as a counter-voice, to the red shirts of Moms Demand Action and other anti-gun rights groups,” says Muller. “The Bloomberg machine hounds our legislators with feelings over facts when it comes to firearms legislation. We welcome everyone to get involved in the conversation at dcproject.info/join.”
You can get Involved, wear teal, and be heard by sharing the campaign using the hashtag #TealFor2A on social media, wearing teal, or sharing the DC Project’s social media messaging. “Research whom you are electing and learn their stance on the Second Amendment, then get out there and vote,” Muller said.

What is the DC Project?
The DC Project affirms that firearms safety and violence prevention are achieved through education, not legislation; it encourages the preservation of America’s gun culture and highlights the diversity and rising demographic of female gun owners through ongoing advocacy because gun rights are women’s rights. According to Dianna Muller, Founder of the DC Project, “We believe that self-defense is a human right and that we are our own first responders. We understand the importance of preserving the right to protect ourselves. Members of our foundation regularly stand before legislators and lawmakers on the frontlines of this battle to protect this crucial right and make their voices heard through education. Stand with us by donating to the DC Project and wear the color teal to let others know you support the rights of responsible gun owners too.”
