Paul A. long

Pat Damer never thought this could happen to him or his family. But he did. Twice.

Her daughter was at Oxford High School on the day of the 2021 shooting that killed four students and injured seven people. Her class barricaded themselves and armed themselves with scissors and textbooks. She survived.

Paul Long is president and chief executive officer of the Michigan Catholic Conference, the official public policy voice of the Catholic Church in that state.

A year later, another of Pat’s daughters was on the Michigan State University campus the night a gunman entered two buildings, killed three students and wounded five others. She too survived.

Those experiences changed Pat, and he is now an advocate for action against gun violence, particularly by supporting his fellow Catholics.
