Shannon Watts never intended to get into the national debate on guns, but that changed after the Sandy Hook Elementary School Shooting. She went from outraged to engaged and decided to do something about it. She started a simple Facebook group to connect with other frustrated parents and that grew into a national movement: Moms Demand Action which is grassroots network with local chapters in all 50 states. Watts who is now based in Boulder has written about that grass roots movement in a new book: Fight Like a Mother: How a Grassroots Movement Took on the Gun Lobby and Why Women Will Change the World.
Shannon Watts will speak about Fight Like a Mother on Tuesday June 6 at 7.30pm at the Boulder Bookstore.
