It was an honor to moderate today’s panel at @the_wing in Chicago with gun violence survivors and @momsdemand volunteers who fight for stronger gun laws in the wake of their children’s deaths. Their activism is inspiring, and I’m grateful hundreds came to listen. #twill
Stories I heard: An Illinois woman got involved in @MomsDemand to teach #BeSMART after her boyfriend died by gun suicide. Another woman and mom of four left her abusive husband with the help and support of our volunteers. She now has a job in politics and plans to run for office.
Afterward, we wrote letters to Congress asking lawmakers to support Red Flag laws.

Thanks to these amazing women, @MomsDemand has grown exponentially in the state of Illinois and in the city of Chicago.
