The STOP School Violence Act was just introduced in the Senate – and after the devastating shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School that killed 17 students and educators, this lifesaving bill to prevent school shootings has never been more urgent.
This bill would help train millions more students and educators how to spot warning signs of gun violence and fund technology – like Sandy Hook Promise’s Say Something Anonymous Reporting System app – to anonymously report those warning signs to law enforcement and school officials.
Arming teachers won't prevent tragedies. The STOP School Violence Act is a real way we can prevent school shootings before they happen, and we need to act now while we're seeing unprecedented momentum from Congress to do something to protect children from gun violence.
We're seeing historic momentum in support of gun safety reform thanks to communities, students and supporters speaking up. We can't miss this opportunity to tell Congress loud and clear that we won't keep waiting for them to do something to prevent school shootings. Prevention is key. Please call now.
