Lauren Footman ’14 is the Atlantic Regional Organizer for the Generation Progress Gun Violence Prevention Network.
Generation Progress recently featured Footman on their website:
Footman grew up in Yeadon, PA but it was during her time at Bryn Mawr that she began to become heavily involved in social justice advocacy.
“I started a college chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP),”she said. “In my current role as President of the NAACP PA State Conference Youth and College Division, we have organized town halls around gun violence and police brutality. We have held meetings with elected and appointed officials of the Philadelphia School District, Philadelphia Police Department, and the Pennsylvania Legislative Black Caucus, to address topics such as gun violence prevention.”
