Erin Fuller Brian
Las Vegas Shooting Survivor
Advisor, Team ENOUGH New York
Co-President, Westchester Brady United Against Gun Violence

On October 1, 2017, Erin’s life was forever changed when gunshots rang out at the country music festival she was attending with her husband, Chris, in Las Vegas. Four months later, after the Parkland shooting in February 2018, Erin became a gun violence prevention activist when she realized she could no longer sit idly by while innocent people are murdered on a daily basis. She started telling her survivor story in hopes of motivating others to join the fight, and joined Brady United Against Gun Violence as the co-President of the Westchester chapter. She speaks at walk-outs, rallies, vigils and marches, and meets with elected officials on the issue of gun safety. Together with motivated young New Yorkers, she founded Team ENOUGH New York, a youth gun safety advocacy organization, to harness the power of the youth voice in NY state, and she serves as the group’s advisor.
