Some of entertainment’s biggest names joined political leaders and activists at the Brady Bear Awards in New York City last Thursday, November 19, to say they’d had #ENOUGH of the destructive gun violence that takes 89 American lives each day.
The event, hosted by the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence, featured a musical performance by Ingrid Michaelson. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo presented Hillary Clinton with the Mario Cuomo Leadership Award and Senator Chuck Schumer was also honored for his historic efforts passing the Brady Bill.
Among the stars in attendance: Justin Bartha, Steve Buscemi, Will Chase, Kenneth Cole, Maria Cole, Alan Cumming, Griffin Dunne, Matt & Kim, Christine Lahti, Carey Lowell, Julianna Margulies, Ingrid Michaelson, Paul Rudd and Paul Schneider.
The Brady Center “Bear Awards” honor the efforts of individuals who have distinguished themselves in their dedication to Sarah and Jim Brady’s vision of a nation without gun violence and who embody their remarkable spirit, strength and perseverance, to the extent that anyone else can!
