The latest mass shooting in Virginia Beach should bring us to a point of outrage and disbelief, instead, many of us are becoming complacent and inured to this very regular news cycle. It is not right for us to continue to honor the victims of gun violence and yet do nothing to stop the next horrible event. Join us on Tuesday June 11th, when Shannon Watts the founder of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America will take the stage at Hanna Boys Center.

Lilla Gilbrech Weinberger, beloved Sonoma bookseller and political organizer, died suddenly and unexpectedly, Sunday, March 24th, following a tragic fall down a flight of stairs.That was how it ended. But that one sentence doesn’t begin to encompass her life. 

Born in Pasadena, California, on October 8, 1941, she grew up in a mixed-raced, working class neighborhood. Her father was an engineer who spent the bulk of his career in aero-space and her mother was a skilled gardener and seamstress.
