One Million Moms for Gun Control's NYC-area chapters are excited to announce our rally on MLK Day, 1/21.
Inspired by Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.'s message of nonviolence and vision of a better future for our children, we ask you to join us as
we show our local, state and federal leaders that we are demanding immediate, meaningful action on common-sense gun control legislation.
This is a family-friendly event, and we encourage all supporters of gun control to attend - not just moms!
Shannon Watts (1MM4GC Founder), Councilwoman Letitia James, Jackie Rowe-Adams (Harlem Mothers SAVE), and Rabbi
Joshua Davidson of Temple Beth El of Northern Westchester are all scheduled to speak.
A limited number of signs will be given out, but feel free to bring your own! Be creative, but also respectful.
Please feel free to share with the community!
