Gun violence is a public health crisis, but at the federal level we are neither doing enough to prevent it nor to mitigate its impacts.

This weekend, we celebrate our mothers, grandmothers, aunts, stepmothers and all the women who love and nurture us.

There will be brunches and mimosas, cards and flowers, backyard BBQs and fancy dinners. It might just be a quick call saying, "Hey mom, I love you." Each family will be celebrating their moms in their own special way.
