Inspired by the courageous young people across the nation, students, parents, educators and community advocates are joining together to take action on gun violence in schools. Together we must take up the students’ call, “No more.”
We call on every individual and community in America to join us—in a way that makes sense for them—to demand that our leaders take real action to end gun violence in our schools and to protect our students.
We know that this problem can be solved. America is one of the few nations where mass-shootings are commonplace. Mass murder in our schools is not a predetermined outcome that we must be prepared for —it is a consequence of decisions made by our elected leaders.
The problem extends beyond mass shootings. Gun violence affects the lives of our students far too often, inside and outside of schools. Gun violence affects too many youth, especially in communities of color, on a daily basis. It is far past time for our leaders to take real action when it comes to gun violence. Because they have not acted, we must.
