ORGANIZATION: Team ENOUGH

  • 102 people are interested

Are you a young person between 14 and 25 who is interested in taking action around preventing gun violence? Join us for our Team ENOUGH welcome session to learn more about the different ways you can engage.

Team ENOUGH is a youth-led program whose mission is to educate young voices about gun violence and mobilize them to take meaningful action against it. Supported by Brady United, we harness the expertise and experience of today’s youth to advance our intersectional work across the country.

Led by an Executive Council, comprised of students just like us, we believe that diversity is a strength, and that only when everyone has a seat at the table can we build an effective movement to prevent all gun violence in all communities.

For us, preventing gun violence not only requires regulating access to firearms but also addressing how systemic racism and environmental factors cause this form of bloodshed to run especially rampant in communities of color. You cannot talk about gun violence without talking about police brutality, white supremacy, the broken criminal justice system, poverty, homophobia, access to affordable housing, or the often barriers separating disadvantaged populations from physical and mental healthcare.

So if you share this belief, join us for our Team ENOUGH welcome session and become part of the movement to end gun violence in our lifetime.

Mission Statement

We are Team ENOUGH, a youth-led organization whose mission is to educate young voices about gun violence and mobilize them to take meaningful action against it. Supported by Brady, we harness the expertise and experience of today’s youth to advance our intersectional work across the country.

Description

We are survivors of gun violence; we are students; we are activists: we are people who experience gun violence in different ways - and to different degrees.

This epidemic has an outsized impact on Black and Brown communities, disproportionately spilling their blood in school shootings, in angry encounters between friends and family, in acts of self-harm and suicide, and in conflicts born of domestic violence - avoidable tragedies, one and all, each made more lethal by easy access to guns.

But we believe that diversity is a strength, and that only when everyone has a seat at the table can we build an effective movement to prevent all gun violence in all communities.

For us, preventing gun violence not only requires regulating access to firearms, but also addressing how systemic racism and environmental factors cause this form of bloodshed to run especially rampant in communities of color.

You cannot talk about gun violence without talking about police brutality, white supremacy, the broken criminal justice system, poverty, homophobia, access to affordable housing, or the often insurmountable barriers separating disadvantaged populations from physical and mental healthcare.

Complex issues call for comprehensive solutions, and Team ENOUGH is prepared to take actions that will produce the answers we need.
