A survivor of gun violence, Kim Russell was moved to advocate for commonsense measures to reduce gun violence in America after the tragic shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. In 2012, she helped to launch a national grassroots organization – Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America – which quickly became a leading voice of reason in the gun violence prevention movement. Kim has also worked with the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence as an organizing manager and every other year co-produces Fun Lovers Unite — a night of comedy and music for gun sense. Kim currently serves as an executive advisor for Women’s March. Originally from Atlanta, Georgia, Kim is a mother of two living in Brooklyn, New York with a background in graphic design.
