The first thing I think about on Mother's Day:' 8 moms affected by gun violence share their hopes for real gun reform in America

Not a day goes by that I don't miss my son, but on Mother's Day, I bury my face in his old polos and try to remember the feel of the hugs I'll never again receive. I’ll try to turn that mournful sadness into resolve once again. Jordan died, but I am still his mom. And on Mother's Day — and every other day — I fight to end gun violence through my work with Everytown for Gun Safety and Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America. I was not able to save Jordan. But I can save other moms from going through a Mother’s Day without their children.

The color of protest

Wear Orange started in 2015, on what would have been Hadiya’s 18th birthday. Since its inception, Kim Kardashian, Mrs. Clinton, Stephen Curry, Amy Schumer and the Obamas have all lent their star power to the campaign. Last year, 225,000 people showed solidarity at the event through the color of their attire. Presumably they will do so again when Everytown follows up the dinner on Thursday with its annual Brooklyn Bridge march on June 2. Expect the streets to become a tangerine dream.

Moms Demand Action goes toe-to-toe with the NRA

That’s why Moms Demand Action volunteers and gun violence survivors will be in Atlanta this weekend, and will continue to show up in D.C. and in every statehouse and boardroom in the country until this crisis is addressed. We are the counterweight—and we won’t stop showing up and speaking out until our nation’s lawmakers put the safety of our families and communities above the profits of the gun lobby.
