Moms Demand Action

Moms Demand Action was formed the day after the Sandy Hook School shooting. A mom, Shannon Watts sat down at her kitchen table and started a Facebook group with the message that all Americans can and should do more to reduce gun violence.

Today there is a Moms Demand Action chapter in all 50 states and Washington D.C. The group works towards stronger gun laws and encourages responsible gun ownership. They believe that gun violence is preventable and they are committed to doing what it takes to keep families safe.
