As Reform Jewish youth, we are committed to building inclusive communities, repairing the world, and pursuing justice. Our work is just beginning.
We want our elected officials to introduce legislation that implements universal background checks, bans both assault weapons and high capacity ammunition magazines, funds Centers for Disease Control research on the scale and impact of gun violence in America, and supports people in crisis through Extreme Risk Protection Orders.
People may say we’re too young, but we’re passionate and driven and we will make sure our voices are heard. The future belongs to us – let’s make it safer, better, and full of hope. Together, we can prevent gun violence.
