Stephanie Schmid Hosts Town Hall with Moms Demand Action & Announces Virtual Town Halls for June
Stephanie Schmid, Democrat for Congress in NJ-04, held a virtual town hall on Sunday, May 31 with Elizabeth Friedman, Moms Demand Action For Gun Sense In America Monmouth/Ocean County Local Group Lead.
Stephanie and Elizabeth discussed gun safety measures in New Jersey and how Stephanie will work to enact common sense gun laws at the federal level, as well as how people across New Jersey’s 4th District can participate in gun sense advocacy with the Wear Orange Campaign June 5-7.
“We are fortunate to live in a state that prioritizes our safety with strong, common sense gun laws, but we are only as safe as the weakest protections elsewhere,” said Stephanie. “I am proud to be a Moms Demand Action Gun Sense Distinction Candidate, which is awarded to candidates who are committed to advocating for gun violence prevention and governing with gun safety in mind. I hope people across NJ-04 will join us June 5-7 as we Wear Orange to honor those who have been lost to gun violence and raise awareness.”
Stephanie will have more virtual town halls in the coming weeks, including on June 8 with David Brown, Chairman of the Monmouth County Democratic Party, to discuss the July primary election, vote-by-mail, and how to safely reopen our beaches, businesses, and Shore communities this summer; and an environment and climate change town hall on June 15 with Sarah Fischell, Co-Chapter Leader (Lincroft, NJ) for Citizens Climate Lobby. More town halls will be announced on Stephanie’s campaign Facebook page: @Stephanie for New Jersey.
