In this episode, I’ll explore the makings of immensely successful grassroots organizations, Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America founded by my guest, Shannon Watts.
Moms Demand is the grassroots wing of Everytown Demands Action on Gun Sense, and spurred the organization of Students Demand Action for Gun Sense in America. Shannon started the group via Facebook one day after the heartbreaking Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting that took place in Newtown, Connecticut on December 14, 2012.
Here’s my conversation with Shannon, and how to connect with her:

As I mentioned in my first podcast post, I created “Oh, We’re Going There,” to keep you in the know on how Millennials and Gen-Zers are shaping and influenced by society.
It only felt right to kick OWGTP off with a major change-maker like Bree Newsome. Bree is a Tisch School of Arts-educated artist, and an activist whose climbing gear is displayed in the Smithsonian Museum in Washington, D.C. from her successful climb to remove the Confederate flag from South Carolina’s statehouse.
