We’re committed to policies that protect children from gun violence

Sandy Hook Promise Action Fund works to pass legislation that advances school safety and mental health and prevents gun violence. Take action now to protect America’s children.

Why Advocacy?

Legislation can save lives and prevent gun violence, and we need your help to get these bills passed into law. When lawmakers hear directly from their constituents, it matters. It’s up to us to speak out to protect all of our children. With the support of grassroots activists, we championed our nation’s first comprehensive school safety law to provide critical resources for students to learn about violence prevention. Join us in creating more change!

Our Issues

Universal Background Checks

One in 5 gun sales happen without a background check, allowing access to firearms by those who may harm themselves or others. Get details

Extreme Risk Protection Orders

ERPOs allow family members or law enforcement to seek the court’s help to temporarily separate people in crisis from firearms.

STANDUP to Prevent Suicide

The bipartisan STANDUP Act helps expand evidence-based suicide prevention training in schools across the country.

Stop School Violence Act

STOP school violence act

We championed the STOP School Violence Act, giving all states access to resources for violence and suicide prevention.

High-Capacity Magazine Limits

Help limit high-capacity magazines, which allow shooters to discharge weapons rapidly and repeatedly without reloading.

“We were proud to work with the bipartisan champions of this legislation to ensure millions more students will be trained to know the signs of violence and act to save lives. Our work does not end here, we will continue to bring our prevention programs to schools and communities across the country at no cost and advocate for life-saving policies.”
