The League of Women Voters, Whitewater Area invites the public to a presentation by Whitewater resident Jenny Rule on Gun Violence Prevention and Our Community. It will take place in the Common Council Chambers at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 21 in Whitewater.
Jenny Rule is a Wisconsin native and a Whitewater resident of 14 years. She and her husband are proud parents of two teenage boys and are active with the local youth soccer club. Last March, after the tragic rampage shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, she felt called to action and started a local chapter of Moms Demand Action here in Whitewater. Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America is a grassroots movement of Americans fighting for public safety measures that protect people from gun violence. Moms Demand Action is non-partisan, open to all (not just mothers) and is active across the country. Jenny plans to speak about local actions that her group is undertaking, including supporting survivors, teaching parents how to prevent unintentional child gun deaths, holding local gun violence awareness events, and even lobbying at the state capitol for stronger gun laws.
Light refreshments will be served.
