How Could We Blow This One?

"A debit card requires a code to work, a car requires a key — and a gun, nothing at all."

Read Nicholas Kristof's piece in the The New York Times and comment if you agree that we need to rebalance our priorities on security issues in America. Despite 91 percent support from voters, Congress rejected background checks. We need action to make our communities across America safer from similar acts of violence.

The Great Newtown Reunion

Sandy Hook Promise is delighted to become a leading sponsor of the Great Newtown Reunion taking place July 27 on the campus of Fairfield Hills. The gathering will be a thoughtful, musical and fun-filled day for anyone who has attended Newtown schools, their families, school faculty and staff, town employees, local law enforcement and fire and rescue volunteers. 

We are supporting the Reunion in lieu of holding a July 27 “Evening of Promise.” This event promises to benefit the wider Newtown community, with alumni visiting from all over the country to reconnect with their hometown. Please visit our Promise Booth at the Reunion for information and merchandise.

This July 4th, we can make a real difference if we make sure every single American knows this powerful truth. Share with your family, friends, and neighbors to spread the word and keep this conversation going.
