Youth Over Guns (YOG), a youth-led advocacy group, works to raise awareness about gun violence that impacts communities of color and to empower youth to advocate for life-saving policies and programs. YOG joined forces with NYAGV in November 2018,

YOG was formed by students of color shortly after the mass shooting in Parkland, Florida. Its founding members include high school and college students from across New York City, as well as graduates of the NYAGV Education Fund’s ReACTION youth program to reduce gun violence.

YOG advocates for policy reform and funding for intervention methods and programs to prevent the cycle of violence in underserved communities.
