Gun Safety

Children deserve to be safe and free from gun violence. With the right policies in place that ensure firearms are used safely and legally, we can prevent tragedies. 

Sandy Hook Promise Action Fund is working to expand background checks on firearm sales, pass extreme risk protection orders, create safe storage laws, and institute high-capacity magazine limits. These policy initiatives, in addition to expanding access to violence prevention programs, can ensure more children are safe from violence.

Violence Prevention

Violence prevention education programs train students to identify when their peers may be exhibiting warning signs of hurting themselves or others and teach them how to seek help. Legislation that supports these programs can ensure more students in states across the country have access to evidence-informed training.

Sandy Hook Promise Action Fund is passing policies that require states to train students on social isolation prevention, suicide prevention, and violence prevention at-large to keep students safe.

Violence Prevention

Keeping children safe also means supporting their emotional and mental well-being.

The Action Fund works to expand access to life-saving mental health services and support for students, including suicide prevention training, and school-based care.

Taking care of the whole child, both in physical safety and mental wellness, allows students to have supportive school environments and can reduce the risk of violence towards self or others.
