Today, on the Bayou Blue Democrats podcast, we’re talking with Alexandra Chasse, a volunteer and gun violence prevention advocate with Moms Demand Action. From the origins of the national organization to local chapters and legislative victories across the nation, we cover a wide range of topics related to protesting and organizing against continued gun violence.
In this episode, Alexandra shares how and when she became involved with Moms Demand Action. Each year over 30,000 Americans are killed by gunfire with many more injured, and there are common sense solutions that would reduce those numbers that have the broad support of the majority of voters. Along the way, Alexandra dispels a few myths that some people may have about this issue, such as that each person can’t make a difference.
In This Episode:
- Local chapters opening up all over Houston.
- Texas has one of the largest chapters in the entire country.
- Campus Carry and Open Carry in Texas.
- Disconnect between laws being passed and public polling.
