Newtown Action Alliance is a national grassroots organization created after the the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School on December 14, 2012. Through all-volunteer activism and advocacy, NAA hopes to transform their tragedy into meaningful action to end the gun violence epidemic. NAA pushes for passing common sense gun safety legislation at the local, state, and federal levels.
1) Transform the tragic consequences of gun violence into meaningful actions to keep children and families safe in the communities where they live and work.
2) Prevent other communities from being impacted by mass shootings, everyday gun violence, and gun suicides.
3) Reduce the more than 100,000 annual gun deaths and injuries in the United States.
4) Provide a voice to the growing number of families of victims and survivors directly impacted by gun violence.
5) Build bridges between suburban, rural, and urban victims and communities that have been, and continue to be, impacted by gun violence.
6) #OutShoutTheGunLobby by uniting the gun violence prevention movement to create a powerful, influential voice to confront and counter the gun industry’s hold on elected officials..
7) Push for comprehensive gun violence prevention policies and strategies to help to end all forms of gun violence in America.
The NAA opposes the National Rifle Association (NRA), the gun lobby, and lawmakers and candidates who accept money from the NRA or don’t support comprehensive, common sense gun law reform.
