Meet The Campaign’s 2022 Honorees
Arizona State Legislator
Hon. Jennifer Longdon
Representative Jennifer Longdon is a Phoenix-based speaker, writer, and activist currently serving in the Arizona House of Representatives.
Paralyzed in a random shooting in 2004, Longdon focuses her legislative portfolio on advocacy for people with disabilities and strengthening laws to curb gun violence.
Campaign Co-Founder & Board Chair
Retired Mechanical Engineer John Johnson worked for 33 years in the nuclear power industry.
Johnson joined Iowans for the Prevention of Gun Violence in 1994 and served as Executive Director from 2000-06. In 2008, he co-founded The Campaign to Keep Guns Off Campus with Andy Pelosi.
Columbine Hign School Educator
Kiki Leyba was a first-year teacher at Columbine when the tragedy rocked a nation. The experience left him in a dark and unfathomable place. Trauma tested him at every level. In the midst of battling PTSD, Kiki Leyba – the teacher – mentored hundreds of students through the difficult years that followed.
This became a benchmark day in Leyba’s life: supporting others traumatized by school violence became a calling.
Retiring Campaign Board Member
Jackie Williams Kaye
A social scientist working in philanthropy, Jackie Williams Kaye became an advocate for more effective gun policies not because she had personally been affected by gun violence, but because she had not. Her children were in high school in 1999. She realized the events at Columbine could happen at their school. She remains an advocate because what happened at Sandy Hook could happen at PS 130 in Brooklyn, where she has a particular interest in the second grade and Pre K classrooms.
