Now or never

A Peacemaking Project by Anissa A.

What is the injustice we are solving?

In 2018 alone, there have been 18 school shootings. How many more shootings and lives lost until people finally wake up? The Now or Never project will work towards implementing universal background checks and changing our gun laws. We will do this by pressuring politicians to enact gun reform and holding meetings in which we encourage teens to stand up and use their voice.

Thanks for posting your project during such relevant time for this type of work. We hope to be able to support you in any way we can. It would be great if you used our toolkit to help you refine the injustice you want to work on so that you can come up with a compassionate insight that will help you put a plan together. You can find the toolkit here: https://www.peacefirst.org/resource/peacemaker-manual
We look forward to hearing more from you and to seeing how we can help you!

Hi Annissa,

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
