About the Cause

On Wednesday, June 15 we will honor the work of Sandy Hook Promise Champions, leaders in communities across the country, building safe, supportive communities by promoting mental wellness and implementing gun violence prevention programs.

As we all remember, in December 2012, a national tragedy claimed the lives of 20 first graders and six educators at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. Although we will never make sense of our heartbreak, we can make a difference today by making sure all kids remain safe at home, in school and in their communities.

Sandy Hook Promise represents one such effort that stands out from the rest. Formed by several Newtown families and community members, Sandy Hook Promise is a nonpartisan, grassroots nonprofit dedicated to building healthy, supportive communities where children are safe from gun violence.

A unique prevention organization, Sandy Hook Promise offers hope by building positive steps parents and community leaders can take to prevent future tragedies, such as recognizing the signs of a person who might harm themselves or others, encouraging social inclusion, and promoting appropriate social and mental wellness.

Sandy Hook Promise has field organizers working on the ground in schools and communities around the country, implementing programs to promote mental health awareness and early intervention, social and emotional development, as well as firearm safety and access.

In these efforts, Sandy Hook Promise is charting a path that welcomes all those who believe we can better protect children and prevent violence through family, school, and community-based solutions. Please join us to support an organization with tremendous potential to create change in our country.

About the Emcee

joescarborough.jpgFormer Congressman Joe Scarborough (R-Fla.) is co-host of MSNBC’s Morning Joe alongside Mika Brzezinski—a show that Time Magazine calls “revolutionary.”  Morning Joe features interviews with top newsmakers and in-depth analysis of the day’s biggest stories.  The New York Times has ranked Morning Joe as one of today’s top morning news shows and has praised Joe and Mika's natural repartee and off-the-cuff commentary.  The New Yorker has described the show as "appallingly entertaining.”

Joe was named to the prestigious “Time 100” list of the world’s most influential people, and Vanity Fair named both Joe and Mika to their 2012 list of “Top Media Power Players.”

In addition to his career in television, Joe is a two-time New York Times best-selling author. His first work, Rome Wasn’t Burnt in a Day, predicted the collapse of the Republican majority and U.S. economy due to his party's reckless spending.  His second book, The Last Best Hope: Restoring Conservatism and America's Promise, draws on the forgotten genius of conservatism to offer a road map for the movement and the country.  

Most recently, Joe released The Right Path:  From Ike to Reagan, How Republicans Once Mastered Politics—and Can Again, which looks back in time to discern how Republicans once dominated American public life. From Eisenhower’s refusal to let “the perfect be the enemy of the good” to Reagan’s charismatic but resolutely practical genius, Joe shows how principled pragmatism combined with a commitment to core conservative values led to victory after victory.

Joe served as a member of Congress from 1994-2001. While in office, he was a member of the Judiciary, Armed Services, Oversight, and National Security committees.

Joe also writes for the Washington Post.
