No parent should fear for the safety of their child every time they leave home. But all too often, young lives are destroyed or changed forever due to gun violence and other forms of violence in the places our children should be the most safe—their communities. More must be done immediately to protect our nation’s most vulnerable population. It’s up to all of us—community members, parents, educators and other child well-being advocates—to work together to prevent gun violence. That’s why PTA members advocate, year after year, for sensible gun safety and violence prevention policies that will help keep children safe and sound.
