On Wednesday, June 5th, Shannon Watts, Colorado resident and founder of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, will be in Denver to discuss her new book, “Fight Like a Mother.” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has called the book “a road map for other everyday activists to make a difference.”
Details for the tour stop:
- When: Wednesday, June 5th from 7-9 PM MDT
- Where: Tattered Cover Book Store
The tour stop coincides with the week of National Gun Violence Awareness, and as part of her fight for common-sense gun safety reform, Shannon — also known as the “the NRA’s worst nightmare”— will discuss how a Facebook group that she started a day after the Sandy Hook School shooting grew into a powerful grassroots network of nearly six million moms advocating for gun safety, with local chapters in all 50 U.S states.
The book also offers a closer look at how Shannon went from being an amateur activist to having a real impact in local communities across the country, shining a light on the unique power of women to channel their outrage into action.
