Pass the Youth PROMISE Act: 
The Youth Promise Act will empower and fund innovative violence prevention and intervention programs in communities around the U.S. that are the most impacted by violence.  In the most violence-torn communities, this legislation will provide a lifeline for our young people. Click here to sign the petition to contact your Members of Congress and the President today! 

The Interrupters Youth PROMISE Action Viewing Parties:  The Interrupters, one of the most critically acclaimed documentaries of 2011, tells the moving story of three "violence interrupters" in Chicago who with bravado, humility and even humor try to protect their communities from the violence they once employed.  It is a powerful testimony of the work of violence prevention and the need for a more in-depth approach in our communities.  Click here to learn how you can host a house party to show the film and educate your network on what is possible in the field of violence prevention and how we can take action to make a real change.    

Join an international youth movement to abolish nuclear weapons: There are still over 20,000 nuclear weapons in the world today. The use of just one of them would cause catastrophic humanitarian consequences.
