Moms Demand Action

MDA’s recent campaign called “No Joke, Moms Vote” campaign held On April Fool’s Day.

Moms Demand Action (formally One Million Moms For Gun Control, whose local chapter is organized by Montclair mom Jaime Bedrin, will hold a Stone Decorating Ceremony in Montclair’s Crane Park on Sunday, April 14 for families in memory of lives lost in New Jersey since Newtown, CT Massacre.

Stones decorated will be in memory of each person lost to gun violence in NJ since Newtown. The event coincides with several gun violence prevention events taking place around New Jersey this weekend. The organization’s hope for this event is that people will devote some time to thinking about gun violence and feel engaged in the effort to secure better gun laws in NJ and our country.

Additionally, Moms Demand Action is asking moms to appeal to their congressional representatives to act on common-sense solutions to address the escalating problem of gun violence in the United States.

“In a country where eight children are shot and killed every day, it is imperative that Congressional representatives hear directly and frequently from American mothers,” said Shannon Watts, founder of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America.
