New York City Chapter Leader
Natalie began working with Brady in 2020 when she got laid off work in the height of the pandemic and decided to redirect her energy to a cause that disturbs, saddens, and impassions her. Working with Brady has exposed her to the devastating realties of our uniquely American epidemic, but has also allowed her to meet incredible, courageous people who have differing life experiences but yet all coalesce around fighting for a future free of gun violence. Natalie is currently in law school and is eager to use her legal degree to continue to contribute to the fight to end gun violence.
Westchester County NY Chapter Leader
Joshua Paul is a retired lawyer and currently leads Brady’s chapter in Westchester County, New York. Joshua graduated from Yale College in 1981 with a degree in history, and from Northwestern University School of Law in 1984. He is a Fellow of the American Bar Foundation. Joshua today spends much of his time reading and writing about different aspects of the gun violence epidemic in the United States. He is especially interested in reaching people who do not identify as “Progressive” to discuss Brady’s plan for curtailing gun violence, and, hopefully, to find common ground that will enable them to support sensible reforms that will save lives.
