Moms Demand Action Applauds Hawaii Lawmakers for Issuing Proclamation Supporting Red Flag Law
The Hawaii chapter of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, part of Everytown for Gun Safety, today released the following statement after Hawaii lawmakers issued a proclamation recognizing Moms Demand Action for their work educating Hawaii residents about the red flag law signed by Gov. Ige last June that went into effect Jan. 1.
“We’re grateful our lawmakers are raising awareness about our new red flag law,” said Carolyn Pearl, a volunteer with the Hawaii chapter of Moms Demand Action. “This policy is a critical tool for intervening before tragedy strikes, but it is only effective when local communities know about it.”
