What is the Mission of Sandy Hook Promise?

Sandy Hook Promise (SHP) is comprised of two nonprofit corporations – SHP Foundation and SHP Action Fund.

SHP Foundation’s mission is to prevent gun-related deaths due to crime, suicide and accidental discharge so that no other parent experiences the senseless, horrific loss of their child. We will achieve this by educating and empowering parents, schools and communities on mental health & wellness programs that identify, intervene and help at-risk individuals and gun safety practices that ensure that firearms are kept safe and secure.

SHP Action Fund’s mission is to 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. We will achieve this by engaging, organizing and mobilizing our national base of Promise Makers and Leaders at a state and federal level.
