What pushed me to do this was that i am related to someone who was in the columbine shooting. She was very important to me so that is what pushed me to do this.

Hi Emily,

We wanted to let you know that we are extending the deadline for active projects to apply for a Mini-Grant during this Peace First Challenge to April 15th. You can apply for a mini-grant anytime, but meeting the Challenge deadlines will make you eligible for additional opportunities.

If you do not require a mini-grant to complete your project, you can remain eligible by completing your project and Reflection before the May 31st deadline! If you submit your project plan by April 15th, we'll be sure to provide you with feedback by April 21st to support you with carrying out the plan.

If you are still in early stages of planning, you are also welcome to apply for a mini-grant at a later date -- although you may not be eligible for some of our larger opportunities, the opportunity for funding and support is always there.

Please let me know if you have any questions, and if we can help in any way!

Best,
Adrian

Hi Emily -- thanks for sharing this project. I'm glad you're organizing an ENOUGH walkout at your school -- there's no better time than right now to challenge this issue of gun violence. Thanks for having the courage to lead.

Can I ask -- what pushed you to lead this at your school? I'd love to hear your story.

And the most important question -- how can we help? We'd love to support your work to organize your fellow students and take action.
