Thanks to our supporters who stepped up and sponsored students for Albany Youth Advocacy Day! Because of your support, our youth leaders are more energized than ever to advocate for safe schools and communities.

Students from our ReACTION high school program and our Youth Over Guns advocacy group were excited to receive valuable hands-on experience in advocacy: They met with state lawmakers, shared their experiences with gun violence, and thanked them for passing strong gun laws in 2019. They also advocated for additional measures including banning undetectable 3-D guns, funding gun violence research, and establishing measures to address the school-to-prison pipeline.

Thank you for making this empowering and unforgettable day happen and for supporting the next generation of gun-violence-prevention leaders!
