Gun violence topic for Speaker Series


Hanna Boys Center

Tuesday June 11th 2019 - 7:00pm to

Gun violence prevention advocate Shannon Watts will be the guest at the Sonoma Speaker Series on Tuesday, June 11, at the Hanna Boys Center Auditorium, 7-8:30 p.m.

Watts is a mother of five who, prior to founding Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, was a stay-at-home mom and former communications executive. The day after the Sandy Hook tragedy, Watts started a Facebook group with the message that all Americans can and should do more to reduce gun violence. That online conversation has grown into a nationwide grassroots movement of Americans fighting for public safety measures that respect the Second Amendment and protect people from gun violence. Moms Demand Action has established a chapter in every state of the country and is part of Everytown for Gun Safety, the largest gun violence prevention organization in the country, with over 5 million supporters.

In her debut book Fight Like a Mother: How a Grassroots Movement Took on the Gun Lobby and Why Women Will Change the World, Watts tells the inspiring story of how her rallying call-to-action grew into a social movement powered by mothers to protect children from America's gun violence crisis, and offers lessons for others who want to make a difference in their community.

Ticket prices range from $35-$85. VIP tickets will include Watts' book with the ticket purchase.
