Million Mom Timeline - 15 Year Anniversary

The Million Mom March is a grassroots movement started by Donna Dees-Thomases after the tragic shooting in Granada Hills, California on August 10, 1999. 

More than 750,000 people marched in Washington, D.C. on Mother’s Day, May 14th, 2000. An estimated 250,000 marched in satellite rallies in more than 70 different cities around the country.

After the march, Million Mom March was reorganized into chapters around the country. In 2001, the organization united with Handgun Control, Inc. and the Center to Prevent Handgun Violence to form the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence and the Brady Center, their chapters continue to advocate for gun violence prevention legislation and social change.
