Call for Submissions
January 1, 2020 - April 20, 2020
The impact gun violence has on young people in the US is devastating. American children and teenagers are 4 times more likely to die by gunfire than their counterparts in Canada, 7 times more likely than young people in Israel, and 65 times more likely to be killed with a gun than children and teenagers in the United Kingdom.1
And every 70 minutes in America someone under the age of 25 dies due to gun violence.2
This is not normal. This is not acceptable.
It's time we say ENOUGH!
To do that we need to hear from YOU!
