“We feel a responsibility to use our facility as a community gathering space expressing our concern for the plague of guns in our country and importance of safety measures required given the 2nd amendment,” says City Winery CEO & Founder, Michael Dorf. “Everytown.org and Moms Demand Action are doing remarkable work in this domain and we are bringing as much of a spotlight to their important work as possible with this event.”
Every Town for Gun Safety is the largest gun violence prevention organization in America. Demand Action is a grassroots movement of Americans fighting for public safety measures to protect people from gun violence.
