On December 14, 2012, twenty children and six educators were killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. Sandy Hook Promise is founded and led by several family members whose loved ones were murdered in the tragic mass shooting. Join us in taking meaningful actions to honor the precious lives taken – and every life taken by gun violence – and help prevent another tragedy.

Honor with Action

Every action makes a difference! We’re grateful for your support.

Join nearly 7 million people who’ve already made the promise. “I promise to do all I can to protect children from gun violence by encouraging and supporting solutions that create safer, healthier homes, schools and communities.”

Attend our virtual event, 9 Years After Sandy Hook: Youth Speak on Gun Violence, on December 8 at 3pm ET. Led by members of our National Youth Advisory Board who were in elementary school themselves when the tragedy happened.
