Washington, D.C., September 1, 2020 - Today, the Brady Campaign endorsed Kate Schroder in her campaign for election to the U.S. House of Representatives.
Brady Campaign President Kris Brown shared:
“Kate Schroder understands that gun violence is not just an issue of public safety, but also one of public health. Informed by this background and experience, Schroder knows that solving gun violence requires an evidence-based approach. It’s why she supports common-sense solutions like a ban on weapons of war, universal background checks, and an extreme risk protection order law to temporarily remove firearms from individuals who are a proven risk to themselves or others. We need Kate Schroder’s voice in Congress to champion these policies. Brady is proud to endorse Kate Schroder for election to the U.S. House of Representatives.”
Kate Schroder shared:
“I am so honored to be endorsed by the Brady Campaign. We need meaningful gun safety reform now -- it’s personal to all of us. I’ve lost a colleague to gun violence, and I’ve also had to pick up my three-year-old son after an active shooter drill. It is heartbreaking and unacceptable that we lose 100 Americans a day to gun violence... and that we have preschoolers doing active shooter drills. We can and must do better."
A native Cincinnatian, Schroder has served on the Cincinnati Board of Health, in several leadership positions, managed global programs in children’s health, and has published her results in peer-reviewed journals. She brings that informed perspective from her public health experience with her to prevent gun violence. Brady is proud to endorse Kate Schroder for election in Ohio’s first congressional district.
Brady has one powerful mission — to unite all Americans against gun violence. We work across Congress, the courts, and our communities with over 90 grassroots chapters, bringing together young and old, red and blue, and every shade of color to find common ground in common sense. In the spirit of our namesakes Jim and Sarah Brady, we have fought for over 45 years to take action, not sides, and we will not stop until this epidemic ends. It’s in our hands.
