Description
This b-roll news footage shows scenes from the Million Mom March, a rally for strict gun control legislation that was held on Mother's Day (March 14, 2000) in Washington D.C. A grassroots organization founded by Donna Dees-Thomases, the movement advocated for stricter gun control and safety measures. Over 750,000 people participated in the D.C. rally, with approximately 250,000 people participating in other locations around the U.S. This footage centers around the Connecticut contingent of the march, showing local children from Darien presenting Connecticut Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro (D) with letters, an interview with DeLauro about the rally's significance, and footage of some musical performances.
