Melissa Nazar

Meet Melissa, a Board Member for 3 years.

Why did you choose to serve on the Stop Handgun Violence Board?
Because gun violence is a pervasive issue in communities across our country… and thoughts and prayers are no longer enough.

What is your most memorable Stop Handgun Violence event?
50 Miles More Massachusetts–it was incredibly powerful to see and hear from students who are so passionate about this cause and have enough of gun violence being status quo in their lives. These young adults are the future of our country and the future of this movement. Completely inspiring!

What’s your favorite Massachusetts destination?
Any beach… be it Carson Beach in Southie or White Horse in Plymouth, love ’em all.

Fun fact:
I love endurance-based physical activities like triathlons, century rides, etc.

Celebrate Melissa’s work to end gun violence and join her at our 25th Anniversary party on October 24, 2019!
