Moms Demand Action has long been working on gun safety issues. As fellow advocates for violence prevention and gun safety, we would be grateful for your presence and support.

Our family-friendly outdoor event is also a great opportunity for your group to build awareness for your own programs and issues you care about. We have space for several booths this year. We expect about 150 families to attend—all clad in orange.
