Become a Youth Over Guns leader.
Join us in our fight against gun violence
We are looking for aspiring activists, and advocates to join our coalition of young leaders. The roles/positions available will require specific responsibilities. They are completely volunteer based, and serve as an opportunity to grow. Youth Over Guns will provide all youth seeking to become politically and socially active with a platform to become agents of change. We are looking for youth who believe they can truly represent and participate in an intersectional movement. These are not permanent positions within our organization, and positions may routinely rotate. We seek to give all youth a platform and opportunity to grow with us !
This is what we are fighting for.
As a youth-led advocacy group we have vowed to uplift and fight for the most marginalized communities, particularly youth of color and the violence that impacts their communities. Since merging with New Yorkers Against Gun Violence we have recommitted ourselves to advocating for policies and programs that reduce gun violence as a whole; with a particular focus on solutions that will save lives in underserved communities of color. In addition to policy reform, we also advocate for funding for evidence-based intervention methods and programs that are effective at preventing the cycle of violence.
"Communities of color cannot, and
will not be left out the national gun
violence prevention conversation."
