Jim Cashel and Anne Ching have made supporting Brady a family affair. Jim was introduced to Brady and our mission through his work with a digital communications firm. He admired Brady’s clear goals, strategy, and tactics, and as a result, joined Brady’s Bay Area Regional Leadership Council (RLC) as a founding member. Sharing Jim's commitment to the issue, Anne joined the RLC to take Jim's spot after his term was complete. Anne was drawn to Brady as she feels it is an incredibly well-run nonprofit, where the issues are well-researched and the strategies are spot on. Gun violence prevention is a top priority for their family and, together, they are committed to staying involved.
Now as our nation emerges from a year of isolation, like many of us, Jim and Anne are concerned about the impact this last year has had on our mental health, especially children's. Anne successfully ran for Sonoma Valley School Board and started her term this year. In this role, she plans to raise greater awareness about the need for gun safety education for families in the context of Brady's End Family Fire Program.
Thank you, Jim and Anne: Your support is what makes our life-saving work possible. We are proud to have you part of Team Brady in our fight to take action, not sides, to save lives and end gun violence!
