Spotlight on the WNPJ member group, Moms Demand Action

Moms Demand Action is a grassroots movement of Americans fighting for public safety measures that can protect people from gun violence. We pass stronger gun laws and work to close the loopholes that jeopardize the safety of our families. We also work in our own communities and with business leaders to encourage a culture of responsible gun ownership. We know that gun violence is preventable, and we’re committed to doing what it takes to keep families safe.
 
 
We were founded by Shannon Watts, a mother of five. The day after the Sandy Hook tragedy, Shannon started a Facebook group with the message that all Americans can and should do more to reduce gun violence. The online conversation turned into a movement of moms, dads, students, families, concerned citizens, and survivors working together with our partners in the gun violence prevention movement to end this uniquely American crisis.
 
 
Moms Demand Action has established a volunteer chapter in every state of the country, including our WNPJ member group in Wisconsin and Washington, D.C. and is part of Everytown for Gun Safety, the largest gun violence prevention organization in the country with more than 8 million supporters.
