Richmond, VA – After the mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas that left 21 dead, including 19 children, Lt. Governor Winsome Earle-Sears will be the Keynote Speaker at the 16th Annual NRA Women’s Leadership Forum in Houston, Texas this coming weekend.  

“Virginians should be in disbelief that our Lt. Governor would speak at an NRA event after an unconscionable Elementary School shooting that left 19 children dead,” said DPVA Spokesperson Gianni Snidle. “That is 19 children who will never enjoy another moment on this earth, who will never get to play with their friends, who will never get to hug their families again. These innocent children will never get the chance to grow up due to this unspeakable act of gun violence. We call upon the Lt. Governor to not attend this event, but also to denounce the NRA who is complacent in the face of another mass shooting.”
