Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America was created to demand action from legislators, state and federal; companies; and educational institutions to establish common-sense gun reforms.
Who We Are
Shannon Watts founded Moms Demand Action in 2012, in response to the devastating shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School
(Newtown, Conn.). It has become a leading force for gun violence prevention, with chapters in all 50 states and a powerful grassroots network that has successfully effected change at the local, state and national level. In December 2013, Moms Demand Action partnered with Mayors Against Illegal Guns to unite a nationwide movement of millions working together to end the epidemic of gun violence.
What We Stand For
Moms Demand Action supports the Second Amendment, but we believe common-sense solutions can help decrease gun violence that kills too many of our children and loved ones every day. Whether the gun violence happens in urban Chicago, suburban Virginia, or rural Texas, we must act now.
We envision a country where all families are safe from gun violence. We are educating, motivating, and mobilizing Americans to take action that will result in stronger laws and policies to save lives.
We will no longer stand by and let Congress, companies and colleges turn their back on sensible gun laws and policies.
American mothers are an important voice that, when harnessed, will wield significant change.
There is a Moms chapter in the Valley. You can join online at www.momsdemandaction/join or email Dori Smith (email@example.com).
