It’s National #YouthViolence Prevention Week! Did you know that statistically speaking, every day 8 children die from gun violence in America? After car crashes, firearms are the 2nd leading cause of death among our youth. In fact, for them, firearm deaths occur at a rate more than 3 times higher than drownings. We need all hands on deck to help save our youth. What can you do to help? Drop your ideas in the comments!
Our current work is focused on building healthier communities and we know that means safer communities. Our members know that kids need to feel safe in order to thrive, that’s why they signed the pledge to end gun violence! We will continue to make sure we listen to our youth and build the world they need in order to be happy, healthy, and free. Want to help? Sign up today!
