Shannon Watts of Moms Demand Action at Benefit Lunch for The League of Women Voters

Event date: 

Thursday, September 19, 2019 - 11:00am

The League of Women Voters of Darien is celebrating the 100th anniversary of the founding of the LWV with a speaker series featuring women using their power to bring about change in our society. The anniversary celebration kicks off in September when the LWV of Darien welcomes Shannon Watts, Founder of Moms Demand Action and author of Fight Like a Mother.

Shannon Watts shares her powerful story of how one mother’s cry for action started a national movement to fight some of the richest and most powerful people in America: the gun lobby. Along with her observations and wisdom, Shannon shares moving messages of perseverance, courage, and compassion, and outlines the core mantras and principles that Moms Demand Action has used to battle the NRA and the intimidating tactics they employ to prevent gun safety progress. Bringing activism into the everyday, Fight Like a Mother will inspire anyone motivated to work for change and channel their values into action.
