Moms Demand Action believes common-sense solutions can help decrease the escalating epidemic of gun violence that kills too many of our children and loved ones every day. That is why Moms Demand Action created the BeSMART Campaign, which promotes responsible gun storage and asks all adults to take simple steps to reduce the harm that can occur when unsupervised children gain access to an unsecured firearm.

We invite all adults invested in children's safety to join a brief presentation to learn about the BeSMART campaign. 

Date:   April 27     
Time:   6:00 pm
Place:  Fairview Heights Public Library                           
           10017 Bunkum Road

SMART adults follow these five easy steps to keep kids safe:
• Secure guns in homes and vehicles.
• Model responsible behavior around guns.
• Ask about unsecured guns in other homes. 
• Recognize the risks of teen suicide.
• Tell your peers to be SMART.

The presentation will be given by our Southern Illinois Moms Demand Action Group Leader, Cindy McMullan.
