Last month’s school shooting in Parkland, Florida that left 17 dead and 14 others injured was the latest in a continuous pattern of preventable, unexcusable tragedies.

Now, mothers throughout Arizona are fighting for change and safer spaces for their children to learn. Moms Demand Action was formed in 2012 after the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, and since then, the group has expanded to include mothers and women from all areas and walks of life. According to their official Facebook page, the organization was established to “advocate for stronger laws and policies that will reduce gun violence and save lives.”

As a non-partisan grassroots community movement, Moms Demand Action gives mothers the platform to call for “common-sense solutions o address our country’s dangerous culture of gun violence, which jeopardizes the safety of our children and families.”

The group’s Arizona chapter has organized a 2018 Lobby Day in Phoenix on Tuesday, March 27 at 9 am. Mothers will gather at the state capital in Phoenix to encourage lawmakers to take steps toward eliminating deadly loopholes in the background check system, promoting gun safety and implementing reasonable limits on when, where and how loaded guns are carried and used in public. 

Lobby Day will give members the chance to ask state legislators to enact gun policies that protect children and teachers and keep schools safe. Those interested in joining this important cause can RSVP online here:

I am a multimedia journalist and proud graduate from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism & Mass Communication. I am originally from Minnesota, and I love learning about my second home, Arizona, and all of it's awesome communities through my contributions to My Local News! When I was a little girl, I created my own "newspaper" for my neighborhood and spent all my time writing, printing and sending each edition to my loyal subscribers (AKA my family and neighbors!). Now, it's a dream come true to be able to write everyday and have a positive impact on communities through my reporting. In my free time, I love to travel, hike, cook and spend time with my family and friends.
