Moms Demand Action describes itself as a “grassroots movement of Americans fighting for public safety measures that can protect people from gun violence. We pass stronger gun laws and work to close the loopholes that jeopardize the safety of our families.” The organization, which has chapters all around the country, frequently makes policy-level contributions to the discussion on gun control. Prior to now, Meghan expressed her support for victims of gun violence. In order to sign a book of condolence for the 51 victims of shootings at two mosques in Christchurch, she paid a special visit to New Zealand House in London in 2018. As per Newsweek, the duchess is a strong advocate for women-led movements like Moms Demand Action, and her letter to the organization comes after rumors that she left Hubb Community Kitchen participants a voice message earlier this month. One of Meghan’s first solo-charity partnerships after marrying Prince Harry involved female residents of Kensington teaming up to cook for individuals impacted by the Grenfell Tower tragedy in 2017. A message posted to the charity’s social media channels this month revealed that “today we received a lovely voice message from the Duchess, being the five years anniversary of the Grenfell tragedy, asking how we are, about our children and families and giving us news of hers. Just being her beautiful kind self.” After reducing her official ties with the U.K. after ceasing to be a full-time working royal in 2020 and terminating her affiliation as a patron with the British animal charity The Mayhew Trust earlier this year, Meghan has continued to support the community organization five years after its creation. Shannon Watts, Moms Demand Action, and Meghan Markle have all been contacted by Newsweek for comments.
.@MomsDemand volunteers and staff have been working around the clock for weeks, so it was moving to receive such a supportive note – and snacks! – from the Duchess of Sussex today. ❤️❤️❤️ pic.twitter.com/obksyn8Jmu— Shannon Watts (@shannonrwatts) June 22, 2022
