Our ReACTION Youth Program students are excited for their Albany Lobby Day field trip, where they’ll have a unique opportunity to meet with legislators, share their stories about gun violence, and advocate for laws to keep them safe.

Here’s what past students have said about the trip:

“On Albany Day, we did a “Stand Up” in honor of the lives taken by gun violence. I found this very powerful and moving. ReAction has helped me realize that I have a voice in making a statement and striving for change.” –Brianna F.

The program “motivates me to make a difference in my neighborhood. It tells me there is promise and potential. It inspires me to remind myself that I need to be active to make a difference.”  –Fredderick H.

Lobbying was the best thing I ever did. It improved my public speaking skills and gave me the opportunity to talk to elected officials.” –Leah T.

Will you sponsor a student for just $40 and help make Albany Lobby Day unforgettable for each and every one of these students?

Each $40 donation will cover the expenses for one student–including round-trip bus transportation, breakfast and lunch, and lobbying materials–and will help ensure they get the most out of this exciting day! Thank you!
