The Coalition–which now has 47 member organizations–was formed by NYAGV to work for the  enactment of Nicholas’s Law, a child access prevention (CAP) law requiring the safe storage of guns in New York State.

The newest groups to join the Coalition are: Churchill School Parent Association in Manhattan and the Parent-Teacher Associations (PTAs) of Poly Prep Country Day School (Lower School) and PS 107, both in Brooklyn. “We’re thrilled to have these groups lend their support for this life-saving law to protect our children,” said NYAGV Executive Director Leah Gunn Barrett. (See the complete list of coalition partners here.)

The Churchill School, an independent K-12 school, recently hosted a discussion about Nicholas’s Law and the Coalition. The discussion–with over 30 Parent Association presidents from independent schools around New York City– was lead by Barrett and Board Member Rebecca Fischer.
