Gun Violence prevention and Politics
The day after the Sandy Hook tragedy, mom of five Shannon Watts started a Facebook page which became Moms Demand Action, a grassroots movement with a chapter in every state and more than three million supporters.

Since their founding, Moms have taken the fight for new and stronger gun laws to the states, passing background check laws in six states and battling back dangerous gun bills that undermine public safety. They have persuaded corporations like Starbucks, Target, and Chipotle to adopt gun sense policies that put the safety of their employees and customers first. And Moms are gearing up to build on these victories by making gun violence prevention a political priority in the upcoming elections.

California has some of the strongest gun violence prevention legislation in the country, and leads the nation in progressive implementation of gun safety measures. But when it comes to gun safety, our nation is only a strong as the state with the weakest gun laws. Join Shannon and moderator, Moms volunteer leader and JCC Board Member Sara Smirin, to learn more about the movement- and why it's important to get involved in 2016.

Shannon Watts, Founder of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America
Shannon Watts is a mother of five who, prior to founding Moms Demand Action, was a stay-at-home mom and former communications executive. The day after the Sandy Hook tragedy, Shannon started a Facebook group with the message that all Americans can and should do more to reduce gun violence. The online conversation turned into grassroots movement of American mothers fighting for public safety measures that respect the Second Amendment and protect people from gun violence. Moms Demand Action has established a chapter in every state of the country and is part of Everytown for Gun Safety, the largest gun violence prevention organization in the country, with more than three million supporters.
