Please read this powerful statement on the shootings from , the Youth Empower chapter.
“We are incredibly saddened and horrified by the events that took place at Santa Fe High School today. Gun violence has taken too many lives, in too many places. We will not stop fighting for all who have been affected by gun violence. Women’s March Youth Empower stands with you, Santa Fe High School. We write these words from inside our own school buildings, from inside classrooms just like the ones you were targeted inside of. We will never stop fighting for you, and for all of us. Stay strong. Together, we will make a change.
We stand by our demands in the Women’s March Youth Empower policy platform, which calls for the banning of assault weapons, for universal background checks on all gun sales, for restrictions on individuals with a history of domestic violence owning and purchasing guns, and for the demilitarization of law enforcement.
Guns do not keep us safe. Solidarity does.”
