Other Opportunities

Not My Generation Gun Violence Summit

There is a summit for Not My Generation for gun violence prevention policy in Washington DC from November 8th-10th in 2019.

It will engage 18-25 year olds, allowing them to utilize the brainpower, expertise, and energy of an intersectional network of gun violence prevention activists in order to tackle the unique issues they face in their home communities. The event will provide attendees with the opportunity to connect, learn, plan, ask questions, strategize, build trust, establish accountability, and be inspired by one another. By building coalitions that reach across lines of difference and transcend both organizational spheres and identity politics, we will actively work toward creating unity within — and harnessing the collective power of — the wider gun violence prevention movement.

To apply please use this link. If you are interested, but have concerns about transportation costs, please contact Jessi Alperin at
