Speaker: MariAn (M.A.) Klein is a founding member of the Minnesota Chapter of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America. She has been a member of the organization for 6 years and is currently on its leadership team.

Description: Each year in the United States, nearly 260 children aged 17 and under gain access to a firearm and unintentionally shoot themselves or someone else. Nearly 600 more die by suicide with a gun each year. In MN, 75% of gun deaths occur from suicide. Join us as we discuss the Be SMART framework. A way to help parents and adults proactively navigate tough conversations and take responsible actions that can prevent child gun deaths and injuries.
