"Go out there and push for things you believe in regarding policy, because at the end of the day

one person can ignite change" -  Louisiana State Representative Helena Moreno

Five Louisiana women -- outraged over husbands shooting their wives -- set out to strengthen domestic violence laws, including a controversial proposal to restrict the gun rights of domestic abusers.  In Louisiana, this was considered lunacy.  Not the part about armed abusers.  The part about wanting to disarm them.  This is the story of what happens when women, armed with passion, determination and political savvy, wake up and refuse to take no for an answer.

Donna Dees-Thomases, Producer of Five Awake will participate in a Q&A discussion

Laura Morris, Survivor Network, D.C. Chapter of Moms Demand Action will Moderate
