Thanks to the support of our Sandy Hook Promise community, we are seeing the butterfly effect we dreamed of when we began this mission to honor our loved ones and create a safer world for all our children.
Students in Moore, Oklahoma responded to our Say Something challenge with an initiative so inspiring and impactful, it won the $10,000 Say Something Award. Watch this interview with Nicole Hockley to see how they’re helping prevent future tragedies:
This winter marks the three-year anniversary of the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut, where 20 children and eight adults died. CNN’s Fredricka Whitfield reports.
The Moore success story is one we’re seeing replicated school-by-school and state-by-state. As People magazine again reports, a Cincinnati student trained in Say Something helped avert a school shooting this fall, saving countless lives.
We look forward to working with you in 2016 to keep our momentum and progress going – expanding our prevention programs like Say Something to protect one million children across the country from gun violence.
About Sandy Hook Promise
Sandy Hook Promise (SHP) is a national nonprofit organization with a mission to end school shootings and create a culture change that prevents violence and other harmful acts that hurt children. Through its life-saving, evidence-informed “Know the Signs” prevention programs, SHP educates and empowers youth and adults to recognize, intervene, and get help for individuals who may be socially isolated and/or at risk of hurting themselves or others. Through nonpartisan policy and partnerships, SHP advances gun safety, youth mental health, and violence prevention education at the state and federal levels that protect all children from gun violence in their schools, homes, and communities. SHP is led by several family members whose loved ones were killed in the tragic mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School on December 14, 2012. Learn more at www.sandyhookpromise.org
