Here at Pennywise we are devastated by the unthinkable tragedies caused by gun violence in this country. In the wake of the Parkland, Fla. school shooting we want to add our voice to the cry for sensible gun policy reform - something that is so desperately needed for the safety of our children, our schools and our communities. We hope you will consider supporting one of these non-profit organizations that are engaged in this effort day in and day out. Send your donation to us with #Enough and Pennywise will make sure it becomes part of the solution!
Sandy Hook Promise encourages supporters to advocate for policy change, take its pledge to help protect children from gun violence and join its "Know the Signs" program to help prevent gun violence. The organization is currently pushing for passage of the STOP School Violence Act, HR 4909, to create new federal funding that would help train school officials, law enforcement and students on warning signs of violence and develop anonymous reporting systems for threats of school violence.
The organization focuses on shifting culture, changing policy and challenging injustice. As two of the most high-profile gun control activists, Giffords and Kelly oversee a political action committee, a nonprofit focused on advocacy and lobbying, and the Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence.
Giffords is currently asking supporters to call their member of Congress to urge them to vote no on the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act, which they say would mandate that each state recognize concealed carry permits from other states.
One of the Brady Campaign's top priorities is urging elected officials to support expanded Brady background checks for every gun sale. The organization, which has chapters across the country, also encourages supporters to change their social media profile in support of preventing gun violence and use the hashtag #ENOUGH.
