After Parkland, the time for action is now

Inspired by the courageous young people in Parkland, Florida and across the nation, students, parents, educators and community advocates will join together on April 20, 2018, for the National Day of Action Against Gun Violence in Schools. Together we must take up the students’ call, "No more."

We know that this problem can be solved. Gun violence is not a predetermined outcome that we must be prepared for—it is a consequence of decisions made by our elected leaders.

The problem extends beyond mass shootings. Gun violence affects the lives of our students far too often, inside and outside of schools, especially in communities of color. It is far past time for our leaders to take real action.

Join us by organizing an action at your school, in your workplace, or in your community on April 20 to stand in solidarity across the country and demand action NOW.
