WATCH: The Story Of Moms
Since its birth, Moms Demand Action has achieved unprecedented wins for gun sense in the voting booth, state legislatures, and the corporate sector. Together, we are creating a safer America for our children.
We’ve Only Just Begun to Fight
Thanks to YOU, in many races where gun laws were front and center, democracy worked and commonsense prevailed. But we’re only just beginning. Help us go toe-to-toe with the gun lobby when state legislative sessions start in January 2015.
Tell Kroger Moms want #GroceriesNotGuns
Moms head to the grocery store on a weekly, sometimes daily basis — often with kids in tow. We don’t expect to face armed strangers when we shop with our families. That’s why we’re asking Kroger, the country’s largest grocery retailer, to prohibit open carry at its supermarkets. In recent years, man shootings and gun rallies have taken place at Kroger brand stores, which include Fred Meyer, Ralph’s, Smiths, Food4Less, Harris Teeter, and others. The company policies says that its core values include creating a “safe and secure workplace and shopping environment.” It’s time for Kroger to live up to that promise.

Preventing Child Access to Guns
Children and unsecured guns are a lethal combination. Again and again, we are horrified by the story of another child killed or injured with a negligently stored gun. According to a newly released report by Moms Demand Action and Everytown for Gun Safety, at least 100 children were killed in unintentional shootings between December 2012 and December 2013—and the vast majority of these tragedies could have been prevented if the guns were stored responsibly. Moms Demand Action will be working on a variety of initiatives throughout the year to reduce the number of unintentional shootings and to keep our kids safe.
