Teens for Action Springfield




Mission Statment:

It all started with….
One meeting at a quiet Springfield library in Sixteen Acres.

We want to…
Address the fact that we, as students in Springfield, live in close proximity to Smith & Wesson, the gun manufacturer that created the weapon of mass destruction used in the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Florida.

We have to…
Address the fact that politicians are ignoring us students, because we can’t vote. The NRA has these affluent politicians in their pocket, attempting to justify the gun control isn’t needed after the death of 17 students.

We need to…
Use our voice and our social media presence to put pressure on politicians and push gun control legislation that addresses the gun violence epidemic across the country. If change doesn’t happens soon, there won’t be a future to look forward to.
