Taking on the National Rifle Association (NRA), one of the most well-funded, intimidating and recently turned extreme lobby groups in America sounds stressful at the very least and putting your life on the line at most. It would make me eat all the chocolate! In this inspiring interview, Shannon Watts, Founder of Demands Action for Gun Sense in America, shares:
•How Sandy Hook changed the course of her life after she started a single Facebook page
•How she leveraged the skills she had from her previous Corporate life to get creative and achieve great gun safety wins and their organizational mindset for when they lose legislative battles. This philosophy is necessary for any of us trying to do hard, life changing things.
•How she has found purpose, community, and chutzpah in her activism, including the strength she gets from leaning into the horror of gun violence, and the health tools she uses so she doesn’t burn out and can continue to restore our public safety.
