Stand With Us to Protect Children from Gun Violence

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.

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.
