Sandy Hook Promise aims to honor all victims of gun violence by turning the tragedy at Sandy Hook elementary school in Newton, CT in 2012 into a moment of transformation by providing programs and practices that protect children from gun violence. The organization supports sensible program and policy solutions that address the “human side” of gun violence by preventing individuals from ever getting to the point of picking up a firearm to hurt themselves or others. This episode of “Standing Our Holy Ground” explores the history of the organization, what Sandy Hook Promise teaches in its programs for children and adults, and how churches can apply the organization’s initiatives to the context of the faith community.
Featuring: Donald Gaffney, Pastor & Author of Common Ground: Talking About Gun Violence in America; Nicole Hockley, Managing Director, The Sandy Hook Promise
