“Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense” Forum
October 21 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
It’s a Movement not a Moment. Moms Demand Action For Gun Sense in America was founded by Shannon Watts, a mother of four, who decided enough was enough following the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in December 2012. Today, they have over 5 million supporters and are the largest grassroots gun violence prevention group in the United States. Moms Demand Action represents the great middle ground of Americans who believe it is possible to both respect the 2nd Amendment and have common-sense gun regulations that address criminal background checks, permitting, red-flag laws, and concealed-carry limitations.
This forum after the service on Sunday, October 21st, will highlight the history of Moms Demand Action and their advocacy at the national, state, and local levels. Additionally, they will describe the Be SMART outreach program, which is designed to educate adults about safe gun storage and our growing emphasis on diversity, equity, and inclusion.
