School violence, unfortunately, is again making headlines after four students were killed at a Michigan high school during a shooting in December that was preventable.

Warning signs about the shooting had been ignored. More families’ lives were forever shattered. As much as the tragedy brought back their own pain, our co-founders Mark Barden and Nicole Hockley expressed their concerns, urging others to learn the signs, take them seriously, and act immediately.

  • In an editorial published by The Hill, Mark along with U.S. Senators Pat Toomey (R-PA), and Chris Murphy (D-CT) urged bipartisan support to pass common-sense gun violence prevention legislation.
  • Nicole, in an opinion piece published by Education Week, unscored how critical it is for educators and policymakers to listen to student voices as they consider solutions to making schools safer.
