Fighting the NRA with Digital Activism with Shannon Watts of Moms Demand Action

Last week, armed civilians conducted their version of a protest at the Michigan capitol to demand the lock-down be lifted, a display to threaten both civilians and lawmakers, says Shannon Watts, Founder of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America. Meanwhile, gun sales continue to surge--and all of this fuels the work that Moms Demand Action does every day. Shannon tell us that long after the coronavirus ends, Americans will still be suffering the consequences of the spike in gun ownership, resulting in increased domestic violence, accidental shootings, and gun suicide. In today's episode she also talks about the legislation Moms Demand Action is fighting for, all born out of online activism, staring with a Facebook page created right at her kitchen table.
