Updated: May 20, 2020

Looks like Shannon Watts will be coming to town to talk about “activism” on 10/14/19.

Interesting that an event to discuss activism is being used by her to sell her book (more money for her I guess......)


For those that would be able to make it, some possible topics to bring up:


1. You have claimed that “gun violence prevention” is not a partisan issue. Why then do you and your organization continuously attack one party? Isn’t that partisan?




2. You always say you’re “just a mom”. Did your former experience working in PR for some large organizations (GE, WellPoint, Monsanto, Bayer, etc) have a direct influence on how you promote your/Bloomberg’s organization?




Her “resume”:

from her:



3. What made you merge with Michael Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns in 2013, which then led to the formation of today’s Everytown For Gun Safety?
