Moms Demand Action Welcomes 2019 MN Legislators

Right before the new legislators in Minnesota were going to be sworn in and begin the 2019 session, hundreds of Moms Demand Action members gathered at the Capitol to encourage them to “act now” about reducing gun violence in our communities.

Many spoke at the press conference, including now Speaker of the House, Rep. Melissa Hortman, Representative Dave Pinto and Senator Matt Klein. We also heard from leadership of Moms Demand action, Bob who is a survivor of gun violence and a representative from Students Demand Action.
