It's been 19 years since Columbine, five years since Sandy Hook and three 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 monthly updates with important news, resources and ways you can get involved.
