Gabrielle Giffords: Resilience in the face of violence
Former US Representative Gabrielle Giffords became known for her resilience in the face of violence after a shooting at a local event that left six dead and Giffords with severe brain injuries. Just eight months after the incident, in August 2011, Giffords made an appearance back in Congress. Although Gabrielle resigned from Congress in 2012, she continues to fight gun violence.
Her message at The MAKERS Conference? "I'm still fighting to make the world a better place, and you can too. Strong women get things done. Be passionate. Be courageous. Be your best."
In celebration of Gabrielle sharing her story today, we're debuting her new MAKERS video.
