This petition was delivered to:

President of the United States

Tell President Obama: Young people demand a plan to end violence in schools!

    1. Sponsored by

      Dream Brave Campaign

President Obama is developing a plan to make sure a tragedy like Newtown never happens again.

We know he’s hearing from politicians, gun rights groups and others. We want him to hear directly from young people. We’re the people most affected by violence in schools.

Watch our video: “California teens demand a plan to end violence.” Then sign the petition demanding a real plan to make schools violence-free.

A real plan doesn’t begin and end with more gun control and more armed guards. People with guns on the steps of our schools don’t make us feel safer. The answer to guns isn’t more guns.

A real plan to keep schools violence-free includes what WE need—Counselors. Mentors. School health centers. After-school programs.

We’re ready to help the President develop real solutions. The more young people can be at the table, the more effective the solutions will be. Sign the petition right now and stand with the young people in this video.

      We have three daughters and have watched them and many other children experience bullying from relational aggression, physical bulying, to sexual harrassment. Children are entitled to an education and we feel they are also entitled to feel safe while getting one.

      The safety of our youth is paramount. Putting more guns in schools is not the solution. Kids need mentors and people to talk to and to help them wrok out life's thorny issues.

      Our children deserve a safe place to learn in our schools. Restoring morality in our American system could only help. Children need healthy boundaries. Banning guns is not the answer. Our kids need to feel safe again!
