Moms Demand Action was founded by stay-at-home mom Shannon Watts on Dec. 15, 2012, in response to the devastating shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School. The organization quickly flourished into a leading force for gun violence prevention, and has chapters in all 50 states and a powerful grassroots network of moms that has successfully prompted change at the local, state and national level.
The newly-formed Napa Valley Group is having a meeting on Oct. 15 at the Napa Main Library, 580 Coombs St., at 6:30 p.m., with a specific emphasis on supporting survivors of gun violence - either those who survived gun violence, or those who had a loved one killed or injured by gun violence. Please join us to share your story, to find resources to support you, or to get involved in the work we doing to combat daily gun violence.
Sadly, like many communities, the Napa Valley has been touched by tragedy associated with gun violence, including the incident at the Veterans Home in Yountville, and we are working with local groups and elected officials in a united front against the epidemic of gun violence in the United States.
You have free articles remaining.
We welcome everyone - mothers and others - and hope to see you there. Please RSVP at every.tw/2Pn1oLE.
