Fight Like a Mother: Shannon Watts Book Talk & Signing

September 16 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Meet Shannon Watts, founder of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America and author of Fight Like a Mother.

About Fight Like a Mother

Hear the inspiring story of how Shannon Watts went from stay-at-home mom to “the NRA’s worst nightmare.” What started as a simple Facebook group to connect with other frustrated parents in the wake of the tragic shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary, grew into Moms Demand Action, a national movement with millions of supporters and a powerful grassroots network of local chapters in all fifty states.

This incredible account of how one mother’s cry for change became the driving force behind gun safety progress will inspire everyone—mothers and fathers, students and teachers, lawmakers, and anyone motivated to enact change—to get to work transforming hearts and minds and passing laws that save lives.
