From March For Our Lives:
Thanks to BIPOC organizers, activists on the ground, and supporters like you, we helped drive the largest youth voter turnout in HISTORY.
During the 2020 Gun Safety Forum, Kamala Harris' advice for us was to not ask for permission to lead -- so we won't. We've more than earned our seat at the table, and now it's time for the Biden-Harris administration to follow through on their promises to center the voices of survivors and advocates.
We just made our first set of demands public and want to share our plans with you. We're calling on President-elect Biden to create two new positions that will respond to the urgent needs of the young people who got them elected.
- A National Director of Gun Violence Prevention, who will report directly to the President and will lead a committee tasked with recommending survivor-centered reforms that reflect what gun violence has become in this country -- a public health crisis that disproportionately affects our most vulnerable populations. The Director should be tasked with empowering federal agencies that have been weakened by the NRA and the gun lobby -- like the ATF, CDC, and more. And they should oversee a $1B investment in funding for research and community-based gun violence prevention programming.
- A Director of Youth Engagement, preferably a member of Gen-Z, who will sit on the Domestic Policy Council and advise the President and senior officials on issues that are affecting young folks across the country.
Our voices make the difference, and we deserve to have a direct hand in the policies that affect us. You can read more about our positions in CNN.
This is just the beginning. With the right people in place, we can enact life-saving policies. Our goal has always been to end gun violence in this country. We said that we would hold the new administration accountable, and that's exactly what we plan to do.
It's time to get to work.
Thanks for all your support,
Policy & Government Affairs Manager
