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. This action kit can help you honor their memories and legacies.
Our mission is to educate and empower youth and adults to prevent violence in schools, homes, and communities. Join us in taking meaningful actions to honor the precious lives taken at Sandy Hook Elementary – and every life taken by gun violence – so you can help prevent another tragedy.
Every action you take makes a difference and helps to raise awareness! We’re grateful for your support.
