Cape Cod Grandmothers Against Gun Violence holds rallies on the 14th day of all but the coldest months at the Airport Rotary in Hyannis. They have done this for the last eight years. The group’s former President, Pat Hatch, will give a brief history of the group and introduce their latest campaign to prevent gun violence, “You Can Save a Life Now!” Like all of the group’s educational programs, this campaign raises awareness around issues of gun safety, extreme risk protection orders and suicide prevention. Hatch will also offer a brief update on the current legislative state of affairs both locally and nationally regarding gun violence prevention. All are welcome.
Live at Chapel in the Pines and on Zoom.

Patricia Hatch had spent twenty-four years as a computer engineer and then as a manager at Raytheon when she retired to Cape Cod. She was enjoying retirement by taking art classes and helping at a wildlife center when Sandy Hook happened and changed her life. So, in 2012, she began Grandmothers Against Gun Violence, a nonpartisan nonprofit grassroots organization which strives to understand more clearly the effect of gun violence in our communities and to share that awareness with the public.
