Speaker: Mary Haggerty is the Legislative Campaign Lead and Becky Morgan serves as the Missouri Chapter Lead of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America. Much like Mothers Against Drunk Driving was created to reduce drunk driving, it is national and was created to advocate for strong laws and policies that will reduce gun violence and save lives. Since its inception after the Sandy Hook Elementary mass shooting, Moms Demand Action has established a chapter in every state of the country and has 3.5 million supporters nationwide.
Title: The Story of Moms
Synopsis: We will learn how Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America was formed, how it became the largest gun violence prevention advocacy organization in the country and how we will change gun laws in America to protect our children and communities from gun violence.
The "Get Out The Democratic Vote Campaign" signed up 30 volunteers for one of five teams at our July meeting. Some of you havenít had a chance to hear about the campaign or to volunteer. At our this meeting, you will be able to talk to team leaders and to volunteer to help.
