Standing in solidarity with teens across the country who are driving an unprecedented movement to fight gun violence in the United States, we have created a fund that will be used to support Sandy Hook Promise, a national nonprofit that provides programs and practices that protect children from gun violence; and Congregation Kol Tikvah, a Reform Jewish congregation in Parkland, Florida, which lost a number of students in the recent school shooting and is actively supporting its local community through counseling, supplies, and programs.
All donations received through our Fighting Gun Violence Fund will go to these two organizations.
This fund will close on Friday, March 30.
We also invite you to join us for three upcoming events:
March for Our Lives
Saturday, March 24, 9:00 a.m.

We will meet at New York City’s March for Our Lives will take place Saturday, March 24, at 9:00 a.m., at the JCC Manhattan (334 Amsterdam Ave).
