MOMS DEMAND ACTIONAfter the tragic shooting in Newtown, CT, many Americans were stunned to learn about the level of gun violence in our country. Stay-at-home mom Shannon Watts decided to do something about it and channel what moms were feeling into a movement to stop everyday violence.

What started as a single Facebook page has grown into a nationwide movement. In the past year, moms have taken on Starbucks for allowing customers to carry concealed, loaded guns in its stores—and won. They called on Facebook to crack down on illegal gun sales on its platform—and won. And they’re calling on state and national lawmakers to enact common-sense gun laws that will protect our kids.
