Our Mission

Enact sensible gun violence prevention laws, policy and regulations at a state and federal level, in the areas of mental health & wellness and gun safety that result in the reduction of gun-related death and injury.

 

Legislative Platform

Sandy Hook Promise Action Fund advocates for the creation of new and enforcement of existing gun violence prevention policy in the areas of:

    • Mental Health & Wellness - identification, intervention and help for individuals who may want to hurt themselves or be violent toward others.
    • Firearm Access - ensuring that those who should not have access to a firearm are restricted and that all firearms are kept safe and secure from at-risk children and teens.
    • Research - funding for research to identify evidenced-based policy and non-policy programs that help stop individuals who may want to hurt themselves or be violent toward others.

SHP strongly believes in upholding the rights of gun owners – we do not support bans on firearms, demonize gun owners or believe the sole cause of gun violence is the "gun". Instead, SHP believes the conversation, programs and policy need to focus on gun violence prevention and the "human" who has made the decision to hurt them self or others.
