The Student Pledge Against Gun Violence is observed annually in schools throughout the country on the Day of National Concern about Young People and Gun Violence. The Pledge encourages young people to take a proactive stance in reducing gun violence.
The Pledge is a national observance giving students throughout the country the chance to sign a voluntary promise that they will:
- never carry a gun to school
- never resolve a dispute with a gun
- use their influence with their friends to keep them from resolving disputes with guns
The Pledge will be followed by an acknowledgment of the importance of individual decisions, multiplied.
