Welcome

 Olympia Lobby Day!
Congratulations to the wonderful members of Grandmothers Against Gun Violence who travelled to Olympia on March 17 and met with Representatives, Senators, staff, and First Lady, Trudi Inslee! We thanked leaders of gun reform legislation like Sen. Frockt and urged many others to stand strong with gun reform. 
 
We informed representatives and staff that Grandmothers is paying close attention! We reminded them we are not going away.
 
Sue Cary, our legislative affairs co chair, testified to the House Judiciary Committee in support of the Sheena Henderson bill that would require notification when a firearm is returned to an abuser.  Good job, Sue!

Our vision is to seek a safer world for our grandchildren and for theirs.

Welcome to a growing grassroots organization. We came together after the terrible tragedy in Newtown. We are grandmothers. We are women who want to use our voices in a civil conversation about gun safety, about ending gun violence in our towns, cities, and nation. Founded in Seattle, we encourage other grandmothers across the country to come together and join us. We remember that it is women who spark so much positive social change, whose determination to stand up can change a culture.
