Sandy Hook Promise

Sandy Hook Promise was founded by community members in the aftermath of the December 14, 2012 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School that took the lives of 20 children and six educators. The organization is dedicated both to finding ways to eliminate the causes of gun violence and to helping the community of Newtown heal from this tragedy. We are working with Sandy Hook Promise to help turn tragedy into transformation by identifying new communities to engage in the discussion of gun violence. Our efforts include bringing strategic thinking to their federal and state advocacy goals, providing communications support to enhance their clear messaging, and identifying channels through which they can reach new communities to join the cause. We also support Sandy Hook Promise efforts on a local level—supporting and raising awareness around the initiatives aimed at bringing the community together in peace. Our efforts with Sandy Hook Promise have resulted in tremendous success in framing their coverage in the media and advocating for common sense legislation in Connecticut, New Jersey, Delaware, Pennsylvania, Illinois, and Ohio.
