Take Action Against Gun Violence in Schools #WeSayNoMore

CTA Toolkit: Take action against gun violence

On April 20, CTA and NEA joined thousands of educators, students and community supporters for the National Day of Action Against Gun Violence in Schools. We sent the same message to our elected leaders: We can no longer tolerate inaction.

We say NO MORE.

Sadly, yet more gun violence and senseless deaths and injuries have plagued our schools, the latest being the 10 students and educators who were killed at Santa Fe High School in Texas on May 18.

No more “thoughts and prayers.” No more calls to arm teachers. Join CTA and others in raising a unified voice, demanding action from our legislators, and voting for the leaders who will help pass commonsense gun laws. See ways you can get involved below:
