Review for Newtown Foundation Inc, Newtown, CT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Newtown Foundation is a Newtown-based, all volunteer organization formed after the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting to help families of victims, survivors and community members impacted by gun violence to transform their tragedies into positive cultural change to end gun violence. The Newtown Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization. Your contribution is tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.

Since December 14, 2012, we held the National Vigil for All Victims of Gun Violence during the anniversary of the Sandy Hook tragedy in Washington D.C. for the last three years giving voice to advocates, families of victims, survivors impacted by gun violence nationwide and raising awareness of the toll of gun violence; coordinated 50-State nationwide local vigils and events with faith and gun violence prevention organizations across the nation to raise awareness; held educational forums on gun violence including a #HonorWithAction Connecticut Youth Forum on Gun Violence Prevention; and sponsored youth to attend PeaceJam and Generation Progress #Fight4AFuture educational summits.

Review for Newtown Action Alliance Inc, Newtown, CT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Newtown Action Alliance is an all-volunteer grassroots organization founded by heartbroken Newtown residents in the weeks after the senseless and tragic shooting at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut on December 14, 2012.

We work to reverse the escalating gun violence epidemic in our nation by advocating for smarter, safer gun laws and broad cultural change. Our membership is open to anyone who wants to help make this nation a safer place for our families and children.

We work to #HonorWithAction to #EndGunViolence by:
-Supporting state and federal policies to reduce gun violence
-Supporting state and federal legislators who work to pass smarter and safer gun laws
-Working with other gun safety organizations on campaigns to keep our communities safe from gun violence
-Building a strong coalition of advocates, families of victims, and survivors from rural and urban communities impacted by gun violence
-Educating fellow Americans on gun violence, a public health issue.
-Engaging more Americans to take action to #EndGunViolence
-Supporting a youth movement to reduce gun violence

Since December 14, 2012, we worked with Connecticut coalition partners to help pass the bipartisan gun safety legislative package in Connecticut (2nd strongest gun laws in the nation); held educational forums on gun violence; made six bus trips from Newtown to Washington D.C. to urge Congress to take action to reduce gun violence; joined Campaign to Unload coalition to urge Americans to unload their investments in gun/ammunition manufacturers; held rallies in front of Newtown-based National Shooting Sports Foundation to hold them accountable for irresponsible marketing and lobbying (gun lobby that spent as much as the NRA in the last few years); and sponsored the Jr. Newtown Action Alliance to support youth gun violence prevention advocates.
