The National Association of Students Against Gun Violence (NASAGV) was co-founded by myself and my close friend, Adin Segal, in the wake of the Parkland tragedy. Neither of us a stranger to political activism, we soon reached out to our mentors and peers in hopes of reciprocation for our strong desire to affect change. Encouragingly, we were met with both passion and numbers. Since then, NASAGV has grown to 50 chapters in high schools across America.
Our model is simple: We are a bipartisan, student-led association that advocates for rational gun reform. Our organization is comprised of semi-autonomous high school and college chapters which work on initiatives hoping to engage with students and law makers in their respective regions.
This blog aims to provide you with educational resources, informational interviews, and our takes on current events regarding gun violence. Whether you are a current NASAGV member or someone interested in learning more about our nation’s rampant gun epidemic, our posts will offer you the tools you need to make informed decisions.
Our blogging team is still growing! Contact us at NASAGV@gmail.com with your name, grade, and note of interest if you’d like to join us.
