At the Brady Center “Bear Awards” at Cipriani tonight, Hillary Clinton received the first Governor Mario M. Cuomo Leadership Award.

The Brady Center “Bear Awards” are named for Jim “Bear” Brady, who sustained a gunshot wound to the head during an assassination attempt on President Ronald Reagan in 1981, and his wife, Sarah, who worked side by side with Jim to pass the landmark Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act of 1993, more commonly known as the “Brady Law.”

The Brady Center “Bear Awards” honor the efforts of individuals who have distinguished themselves in their dedication to Sarah and Jim’s vision of a nation without gun violence and who embody their remarkable spirit, strength and perseverance, to the extent that anyone else can!

Hillary’s day began with a TV appearance. She then delivered a major policy speech and attended the premiere of the documentary “Once and for All” which chronicles the 1995 Beijing Women’s Conference.  Receiving this important honor in recognition of her efforts to curb gun violence was the perfect way to end her busy day.

Our best compliments, Mme. Secretary!  Well-deserved!

Statement from President Clinton and Secretary Clinton on the Passing of Sarah Brady

Statement

Hillary and I are saddened to learn of the passing of Sarah Brady. Sarah and her late husband Jim were fierce champions of sensible gun legislation, for which few could make as passionate or as personal a case. She transformed tragedy into a courageous campaign, and because of her work and her remarkable life, American families are safer today. It is one of the great honors of my life that I had the opportunity to sign the Brady Bill into law in 1993, after Jim and Sarah fought so hard for more than six years to help pass it. We treasured the friendship of this wonderful woman, and we will never forget her strength of will or her dauntless courage in the face of long odds. Our prayers go out to Sarah’s family and our thoughts are with her many friends, admirers and supporters.
