Gail Erdos

August 6, 2019
Meet Gail, our newest Board Member who joined in July 2019.

Why did you choose to serve on the Stop Handgun Violence Board?
I have been volunteering with SHV for a year, and the mission aligns with my beliefs. Having become so involved in the activist side I realized I’d also like to take part in decision making and ideas.

What is your most memorable Stop Handgun Violence event?
I volunteered for the entire weekend Student Summit. I love working with young people so this event was perfect!

Has gun violence personally impacted you?
Yes. In 1994 I worked at Planned Parenthood in Brookline. My dear friend and Co-worker, Shannon Lowney, was murdered and others were injured. Fridays were my day off so I wasn’t there that day. Shannon was a bright light and is sorely missed.

What’s your favorite Massachusetts destination?
Fenway Park

Fun fact:
I used to be a college DJ and then hosted a cable TV show a few years ago, called GailForce.

Celebrate Gail’s commitment to end gun violence and join her at our 25th Anniversary Party!
