Shannon Watts was a stay-at-home mom folding laundry when news of the tragic shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary flashed across the television screen. In one moment, she went from outraged to engaged and decided to do something about it. What started as a simple Facebook group to connect with other frustrated parents grew into Moms Demand Action, a national movement with millions of supporters and a powerful grassroots network of local chapters in all 50 states. Shannon has been called "the NRA's worst nightmare"--and her army of moms have bravely gone up against the gun lobby, showing up in their signature red shirts, blocking the hallways of congress with their strollers, electing gun sense candidates and running for office themselves, proving that if the 80 million moms in this country come together, they can put an end to gun violence.

Fight Like a Mother is the incredible account how one mother's cry for change became the driving force behind gun safety progress. Along with stories of perseverance, courage, and compassion, Watts shines a light on the unique power of women--starting with what they have, leading with their maternal strengths, and doubling down instead of backing down. While not everyone can be on the front lines lobbying congress, every mom is already a multi-tasking organizer, and Shannon explains how to go from amateur activist to having a real impact in your community and beyond. Fight Like a Mother will inspire everyone--mothers and fathers, students and teachers, lawmakers, and anyone motivated to enact change--to get to work transforming hearts and minds, and passing laws that save lives.

Review:
"Shannon Watts is one of my personal heroes, a true activist for our time. After Sandy Hook, she channeled her despair and fury into action. Fight Like a Mother will inspire you to take an issue on and ultimately, change the world."--Katie Couric

"There's never been more energy behind America's gun safety movement than there is today, and Shannon Watts and Moms Demand Action are a big reason why. Shannon is fearless, and her story shows that change - even on the toughest issues - really is possible."--Michael Bloomberg

"Shannon is an inspiration to every mom fighting to build a better, safer country for our kids. Her story reminds us that, together, we can be a powerful force for change - and that you should never underestimate a mom's ability to get things done."--Governor Gina M. Raimondo, Rhode Island

"There is nothing more powerful than a mother on a mission--and Shannon perfectly explains why. This mother has fought to lay the groundwork for one of America's largest movements for gun violence prevention."--Congresswoman Lucy McBath (GA-06)

"There is nothing more powerful and terrifying than a momma bear protecting her cubs. This book is a guidebook to all who are looking to drive real and lasting change in their communities."--Congresswoman Robin L. Kelly (IL-02)

"A page-turner, overflowing with moving stories as well as practical advice.... Shannon's courage and down-to-earth approach radiate from every page, and the theme of finding her 'soul sisters' in her fight is as powerful as it is universal."--Cecile Richards

"It's encouraging to see someone tell the story that, sadly, has unfolded over and over again in this country. This book has the potential to make change so we can see a better tomorrow."--Soledad O'Brien

"Shannon Watts' fight is for her kids and all our kids. Shannon stewards this rocket ship of hope for those of us distraught by the epidemic of gun violence in our country. A great read!"--Chelsea Clinton

"Fight Like A Mother is practical and personal; not only equipping you with the necessary and nitty-gritty tools to start a movement, but also the fearless mentality to do it now."--Preet Bharara, former U.S. Attorney, host of the "Stay Tuned with Preet" podcast

"Too many mothers have been tragically impacted by gun violence, and yet they courageously turn their grief and frustration into action. I'm honored to fight alongside them, and I'm so glad Shannon Watts has written this book and provided a road map for other everyday activists to make a difference."--Speaker Nancy Pelosi
