Guns Down and the Student Gun Violence Summit
Students and teachers come together to build a future with fewer guns
Students and teachers from across America will participate in a student-led educational and interactive forum on gun violence in America. The October 20-21st summit in Washington, D.C. will aggregate conversations and compromise by students to develop a “Students’ Bill of Rights,” which will be an organizing document for student led events and actions demanding elected officials and candidates address important issues like preventing gun violence and building a future with fewer guns and safer schools and communities.
The goal of the summit will be to review existing student plans to reduce gun violence and combine them into a single “Students’ Bill of Rights” on school safety, along with a corresponding action plan. The Students’ Bill of Rights will be used by students across the country as an organizing document for civic engagement activity focused on reducing the gun violence that has affected far too many young lives.
