With the school year ending, it’s time for grades to be awarded. Today, the youth-led gun violence prevention group Team ENOUGH issued report cards on every single member of Congress, grading them on how they have - or have not - supported gun safety legislation.
Two years after the tragic shooting at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, FL that killed 49 people and wounded 53 others, student advocates for gun safety joined with activists nationwide for the National Die-In. Members of Team ENOUGH, a Brady Campaign initiative created to engage and empower young voters around ending gun violence, traveled to Washington, DC to join the rally on Capitol Hill, where they lay motionless for 12 minutes in honor of the more than 700 people killed in mass shootings over the past two years.
Student leaders from Marjory Stoneman Douglas, Sandy Hook, Columbine, and neighborhoods impacted by gun violence across the country have joined together to form Team ENOUGH. This new youth-led group will focus on student engagement on the issue of gun violence prevention and ways to continue momentum for change, including voter education, community empowerment, and advocacy. Team ENOUGH will convene individual leaders and other youth-focused organizations on a national platform.
