Sandy Hook Promise (SHP) is a national nonprofit organization led by several family members whose loved ones were killed in the tragic mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School on December 14, 2012.
Based in Newtown, Connecticut with staff across the U.S., our organization works directly with educators, organizations, elected officials, and other partners to prevent shootings and other violence in schools nationwide.
SHP is the only gun violence prevention organization in the nation to research, develop, and deliver age-appropriate trainings and support for students and educators to “Know the Signs” of potential violence — as well as successfully write and pass bipartisan federal and state legislation through a separate 501(c)4 Action Fund that helps make schools safer.
