Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence

Both the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act of 1993 and the Brady Center for Prevention of Gun Violence are named after Jim Brady who was paralyzed and later died as the result of a gunshot wound to the head during an assassination attempt of Ronald Reagan. Both Jim and Sarah Brady have been tireless advocates of gun control. The 'Bear Awards' honor the efforts of individuals who have distinguished themselves in their dedication to Jim Brady's vision of a nation without gun violence. The gala was held last night in the beautiful Gotham Hall and Liev Schreiber, Katie Couric, and Griffin Dunne were there in support. Vy Higginsen's Gospel for Teens performance was incredibly uplifting!Gotham HallVy Higginsen's Gospel for Teensauctioneer; guest, Dan Gross, Susan Smith Ellis; guests; Susan Smith Ellisguest, Liev Schreiber, Sarah BradyGriffin Dunne + Katie Couric; guests; guest + Samantha Mathis
