Let's Mean It When We Say "Never Again"

Top resources to protect kids and families from gun violence in Washington state

Sandy Hook victims

It's been 19 years since Columbine, five years since Sandy Hook and eight months since Parkland. Gun violence is now the third leading cause of death in children.


For years, ParentMap has covered the issue of gun responsibility from every possible angle. In the wake of the Parkland shooting, we are renewing our commitment to protecting children and families from gun violence. We join teen activists from across the country, Washington state's MomsRising and Alliance for Gun Responsibility and others in calling for common-sense gun reform and saying, once and for all: #NeverAgain.


Sign up below to join us and say "ENOUGH" to gun violence. We'll send periodic updates with important news, resources and ways you can get involved.


Below find ParentMap's top resources for learning about this issue and opportunities for taking action.
