Missy: Making Change

We believe in protecting the children and families of Tucson and Southern Arizona. We volunteered at one of the tents here at Tucson Meet Yourself spreading the word about Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America. Two years ago I lost a friend in a mass shooting in Louisiana and so I got involved. We’re making a difference. Especially in the wake of the festival shooting in Las Vegas, the deadliest shooting in United States history, it’s more important than ever that we show up to outdoor festivals like this and show that we’re not afraid, but we’re also going to make changes to gun laws so that we’re all safe.
