National Moms Demand Action Launching Huntsville Chapter

A national organization aimed at reducing gun violence through gun-sense education and legislation is launching a Huntsville chapter next month. Moms Demand Action is the result of a merger between two smaller activism groups: Mayors Against Gun Violence, which was born of a mayoral summit in 2006, and Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, which was founded the day after the Sandy Hook massacre. Formerly known as Everytown for Gun Safety, the moniker Moms Demand Action is an homage to the widely influential Mother’s Against Drunk Driving (MADD) association. The mission of the organization is similar: find ways to end the violence by empowering communities.

Mom’s Demand Action is dedicated to looking at the whole of gun violence in America and in supporting ways to end the violence. Their mission includes providing a presence in legislation as well as educating the public about gun violence. They currently have over 4 million bipartisan supporters who have joined the movement.

You can learn more about the organization by visiting their website, momsdemandaction.org or finding them on Facebook. Of course, dads, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and anyone who would like to help work toward reasonable dialogue about gun violence in our community is welcome to attend.
