Shannon Watts, Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America

Shannon Watts, Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America

Moms, one year later

 

One year ago, I wasn’t an activist of any kind. I was a stay at home mom of five children in a suburb of Indianapolis.

 

But in the wake of the mass shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, I went online and started a Facebook group for moms who wanted to get involved.

 

I’m still amazed at the response, and one year later we’ve grown to include chapters in all 50 states and are widely recognized as the nation’s leading grassroots organization working on gun violence prevention.

One Year Later: No More Silence

 

Published on Dec 16, 2013

Shannon Watts, Executive Director of Moms Demand Action, tells the story of how the gun violence prevention movement has grown in the one year since the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Now moms across the country have built a grassroots movement from the ground up and have become a national organization with chapters in all 50 states.

We’re getting stronger, and we’re expanding in states and at the local level so we can be even more involved as this fight moves to city and state legislatures around the country. Gun violence is a problem that won’t be solved until we get laws on the books that will protect all communities, and we’re going to be calling on grassroots supporters like you to join forces with us and solve this problem.

 

Someday, when we look back at this year, we will remember it as the moment that launched a movement that changed everything — or the time we had real progress within our reach, but lacked the strength to seize it.
