This is what we are fighting for.
Our mission is to build youth power in marginalized communities throughout the nation and encourage legislative advocacy to prevent gun violence, while shifting public discourse towards an evidentiary approach to keeping schools and communities safe.
In concentrating our efforts on historically oppressed communities and leading with Black and Brown Youth most impacted by the public health crisis — we strive to holistically foster safety and justice.
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 !
"Communities of color cannot, and
will not be left out the national gun
