Volunteers Are The Heart Of Sandy Hook Promise

Thanks to the efforts of our compassionate Promise Leader volunteers across every U.S. state, people of all backgrounds and beliefs are coming together to end school shootings.

Gun Violence Prevention Volunteer Activities

As official Sandy Hook Promise volunteers, Promise Leaders choose to take action in four main areas: Building Awareness, Program Promotion, Advocacy, and Fundraising. We will provide you with talking points, templates, and resources. We’d love for you to share ideas for your own activities, too!
