Today the Brookings Institute has released an essay entitled "The Promise: The Families of Sandy Hook and the Long Road to Gun Safety."
The goal is for “The Promise” to contribute to the ongoing national conversation around gun safety.
“Our hearts our broken; our spirit is not.”· The Promise tells the story of Sandy Hook Promise, the gun safety advocacy organization formed by families in Newtown, Connecticut to support the victims and survivors of the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, through the eyes of their Washington D.C. advisor, Matt Bennett. It shows the difficulty in challenging one of the most sophisticated special interest groups in modern history and the perseverance by a uniquely dedicated team of advocates.
We need everyone to join the conversation. Read the essay, and share it!
