Shannon Watts - Fight Like a Mother

How a Grassroots Movement Took on the Gun Lobby and Why Women Will Change the World, a Book Talk & Signing

Shannon Watts is the founder of Mom's Demand Action for Gun Sense in America--the leading force for gun violence prevention, with chapters in all 50 states and a powerful grassroots network of moms that has successfully effected change at the local, state and national level. She will discuss and sign Fight like a Mother: How a Grassroots Movement Took on the Gun Lobby and Why Women Will Change the World ($25.99 HarperOne).

This is the incredible account how one mother’s cry for change became the driving force behind gun safety progress. Along with stories of perseverance, courage, and compassion, Watts shines a light on the unique power of women--starting with what they have, leading with their maternal strengths, and doubling down instead of backing down. While not everyone can be on the front lines lobbying congress, every mom is already a multi-tasking organizer, and Watts explains how to go from amateur activist to having a real impact in your community and beyond.
