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.  Shannon's new book Fight Like a Mother, How a Grassroots Movement Took on the Gun Lobby and Why Women Will Change the World addresses how and why we need to step up and speak out. Shannon was moved to action after the tragic shooting at Sandy Hook and has since made gun violence the center of her life. Come and hear how her passionate demands for public safety have rallied people all over the country to make their local governments listen to reason regarding guns. We encourage you to bring young people to this event as an inspiration and stimulus to keep the #neveragain movement going forward. Tickets are available at https://www.sonomaspeakerseries.com/tickets-and-info/ and VIP tickets will include a free signed copy of the book.
