Firearm, mental health ambassadors interact with community in solution-based event

November 16, 2021

Walk the Talk America was mentioned in an SJSU News article by Bryanna Bartlett on the “Day of Action Against Gun Violence” event. The event was hosted by SJSU Center for Community Learning and Leadership and featured local and national gun violence-prevention advocates, including Walk the Talk America.

Below is an excerpt from the article —

One of the tables stationed next to the conference was that of Walk the Talk America, a nationwide organization that allies the gun-owning and firearm community with the mental health community for gun violence solutions.

Founder and president Michael Sodini said he started Walk the Talk America in 2018 once he recognized the two sides barely communicate with each other because they politically disagree and rely on legislation to “battle it out.”
