Meet the Author

Activist, dance enthusiast, coordinator, administrator, and grants writer for nonprofit organizations, Lois Schaffer has devoted her energies to protecting human rights. Her activism prompted her to participate in marches and rallies in support of the civil rights movement and to protest the war in Vietnam. She was actively advocating the reduction of gun violence even before her daughter’s murder. Now her energies are even more focused to honor her daughter’s memory and prevent tragedies for other families.

Lois’s nonprofit, grant writing, and administrative duties included writing proposals for the Pearl Lang Dance Foundation Inc. and supporting low-income housing for seniors. Her ongoing mission to reduce gun violence has included speaking about sensible gun legislation to various local and national groups and attending press conferences, gun-control rallies, and the legislative hearings on gun control in Connecticut after the Newtown massacre. This book is indicative of her commitment and concern for others.

Lois and her husband David live in Great Neck, Long Island. They have a son and six grandchildren.
